Motorcyclist killed in crash on Loop 202, DPS says

A deadly crash involving a motorcycle shut down the westbound lanes of the Loop 202 Red Mountain on Aug. 21, the Arizona Department of Public Safety said.

The crash happened near McClintock Drive just after 5 a.m. on Aug. 21. As troopers were responding to a report of a disabled vehicle blocking the HOV lane, a motorcycle crashed into the car. The motorcyclist was then hit by another car after the initial collision.

The motorcyclist died at the scene. He was not identified.

"Weather and impairment do not appear to be factors in this collision," DPS said.

The westbound lanes of the freeway were closed at the Loop 101. They have since been reopened.
