Aaron Riley Dies in Motorcycle-Vehicle Crash in North Phoenix


A man lost his life on Wednesday afternoon, February 26th, in a motorcycle-vehicle crash in north Phoenix, Arizona. He got identified as 51-year-old Aaron Riley.

The accident happened close to 31st Avenue and Bell Road. According to Phoenix police, a woman, whose name they didn’t release was driving a 2014 Dodge Charger, and trying to make a turn on 31st Avenue.

The unnamed 27-year-old woman saw the motorcycle Riley was riding on coming her way but failed to yield the way to him. The motorcyclist was unable to stop in time and crashed into the Dodge.

Riley was thrown off the motorcycle and died as soon as he hit the ground. The female driver was not hurt from the accident and remained at the scene to give her statement to the police.

The woman did not show any sign of impairment, and the police have ruled out intoxication of any kind as a contributing factor. They are still investigating the accident and have not stated if the woman will face any legal action.

In Arizona, motorcycle collisions account for a considerable percentage of all traffic accidents in the state. A motorcyclist is 16 times more likely to die in a motorcycle-vehicle crash than the driver of a car.

Motorcycle riders often drive faster than the speed limit, which contributes to the fatality rate. Helmets go a long way in preserving the life of motorcycle riders and decrease the fatality rate and traumatic brain injury.

Thus, motorcycle riders should always wear a helmet when driving a motorcycle. They should also operate within the speed limit to enable them to brake on time and avoid a collision.
