Motorcyclist Killed in Truck Accident on Avenue 3 E. in Yuma, AZ

Officials said that a 21-year-old man, identified only as an active-duty marine, was on a motorcycle traveling southbound along Avenue 3. At Palo Verde, authorities believe that a northbound semi-truck with a flatbed trailer attempted to make a left turn onto Palo Verde. Doing so, the motorcycle crashed into the side of the trailer.

The collision ejected the motorcyclist, ultimately resulting in fatal injuries. No one else was hurt. Right now, there is no further information from authorities confirming the cause of the crash. Most recent images of the intersection show a stop sign along Palo Verde, but there does not appear to be signage for northbound and southbound traffic, which generally means a vehicle making a left turn must yield to oncoming traffic. These details and others surrounding the crash remain under investigation at this time.
