The Arlington Police Department responded to a crash involving a motorcycle and a passenger vehicle in the 1500 block of North Collins Street on Wednesday, August 28, 2019 at approximately 10:34 p.m.

Preliminary details indicate that the motorcycle was traveling northbound when the operator of the motorcycle accelerated and changed lanes around another vehicle. The driver of the passenger vehicle was driving southbound on North Collins and entered the left turn lane to turn eastbound on Skyline Drive. As the passenger vehicle was turning, the motorcycle struck the passenger vehicle, causing the passenger vehicle to roll onto its side. The motorcycle operator was ejected and pronounced deceased at the scene. The driver of the vehicle was transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Investigators do not believe the motorcyclist was wearing a protective helmet. Speed of the motorcycle is believed to be a factor in the crash.

The Tarrant County Medical Examiner's Office will identify the deceased once next of kin has been notified.
