Arlington, TX – Man Killed in Motorcycle Accident on Overhill Dr
Arlington, TX (June 23, 2019) On the evening of June 22nd, a motorcycle accident happened at the intersection of Overhill Drive and East Abram Street. A motorcycle was traveling eastbound on East Abram Street as a pickup truck was stopped at a red light at the intersection. The pickup truck driver then turned and crashed into the motorcycle. The impact caused the motorcyclist to eject off of his motorcycle and land in the street. Unfortunately, the motorcyclist was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.
When the ambulance arrived at the intersection, they found the motorcyclist dead at the scene. The two occupants inside of the pickup truck did not sustain any injuries.
