Motorcyclist Killed in Truck Accident on 21st Street in Ogden, UT

According to reports, a motorcyclist was going eastbound along 21st Street approaching Lincoln. Authorities say that a commercial truck "didn't see" the motorcyclist before crossing through the intersection, and the two vehicles collided.

As a result of the collision, the biker sustained injuries which ultimately proved fatal. There were no other reported injuries. Right now, authorities only say they do not think impairment was a factor, and there are no reported charges or citations.

I understand why early reports like these tend to be vague in their recounting of what led to a crash. But when they say a truck driver "didn't see" a motorcyclist at what seems to be a clear intersection during daylight hours, I can't help but wonder why the truck driver didn't see the motorcycle. Was there some unusual factor that prevented the driver from seeing the approaching rider, or could it be something in the truck had a stronger hold on the driver's attention than the road?
