One rider was killed and another was hurt Tuesday when a vehicle hit a motorcycle in Van Buren, authorities said.
Frankie Dean King, 63, of Van Buren was operating a 1971 motorcycle east on Arkansas 162 about 6:40 p.m. when he tried to turn right onto Mays Branch Road, according to an Arkansas State Police report.
An eastbound 2013 Chevrolet then hit the motorcycle in the rear, police said. King and a passenger, Velma L. Brandon, 49, of Rudy, were ejected and the motorcycle caught fire.
King suffered fatal injuries. Brandon was taken to a hospital with unspecified injuries. Her condition Wednesday wasn't clear.
The death was the 357th fatality in a traffic accident in Arkansas so far this year, according to preliminary figures.
