A motorcyclist was struck and killed on Iron Springs Road near Skull Valley, Friday, April 28, said Dwight D’Evelyn, Yavapai County Sheriff’s spokesman.
Just before 12:30 p.m., the victim, a man in his 50s, was hit by a pickup truck as he rounded a curve, headed north on Iron Springs.
“Initial indications are that the female driver of the pickup, in her 50s, may have over-corrected, causing her to enter the northbound lane and strike the motorcyclist,” D’Evelyn said.
Investigators were on the scene Friday afternoon, trying to reconstruct the crash.
“Speed is likely a consideration as one of the causal factors, but the investigation is ongoing,” D’Evelyn said.
He did not identify either driver.
