Motorcyclist dies in Arivaca Road crash

Citizen Staff Writer



A man was killed Tuesday morning when he lost control of his motorcycle on Arivaca Road south of Tucson, the Pima County Sheriff’s Department said.

Deputies withheld the man’s identity pending notification of his relatives.

Deputy Dawn Barkman, a department spokeswoman, wrote in an e-mail that the man lost control of his motorcycle, missed a turn and crashed into a road sign.

Deputies were called at 11:36 a.m. and the man died at the scene, deputies said.

The man was wearing a helmet and there were no apparent signs of alcohol involvement, but investigators believe that speed may have been a factor in the crash, deputies said.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
