PHOENIX, AZ – A man is dead and another is in the hospital after a motorcycle and a pickup truck crashed in north Phoenix.

Phoenix firefighters were called to Central Avenue and Bell Road around 8 p.m. Saturday after a report of a rollover crash in the north Phoenix neighborhood. When crews arrived, they found a pickup truck rolled onto its side and a smashed-up motorcycle.

Officials say one man died at the scene, and another man was taken to a local hospital in critical condition. Bell Road is closed between 3rd Avenue and 3rd Street. Phoenix police are now investigating what led up to the crash.

We extend our condolences to the family and friends of the victims of this crash.

Motorcycle, ATV, bicycle, and pedestrian accidents are different from passenger vehicle crashes in that they do not involve a protective metal shell that shields victims from impacts. Alternative vehicle crashes don’t necessarily happen more often than other types of accidents, but the fatality rate is higher.
