An Apache Junction man was killed Saturday when his motorcycle collided with a semi-truck north of Strawberry.
The man was reportedly heading southbound on State Route 87 around 1:15 p.m. when his red 2006 Yamaha motorcycle crossed the centerline in a right curve, striking a northbound white 2019 Mack semi, according to the Arizona Department of Public Safety.
The motorcycle rider, a 62-year-old man from Apache Junction, died on scene. The driver of the semi, a 46-year-old man from Taylor, was uninjured.
The accident closed the highway for several hours. The Arizona Department of Transportation put out a release at 3:15 p.m. saying all lanes were back open.
