Parts of a motorcycle are loaded onto a wrecker Monday afternoon after a fatal accident involving a tractor-trailer on Sloane Drive in Little Rock. The motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene.

A Monday afternoon vehicle accident has left one person dead in Little Rock.

Little Rock Police Department Lt. Sidney Allen said the accident, which occurred about 1 p.m. near the 5100 block of Sloane Drive, involved a motorcycle and a tractor-trailer.

Stan Harmon, an accident re-constructionist with the Little Rock Police Department, said the eastbound motorcyclist tried to pass a vehicle in a no-passing zone and struck the cab of a YRC Freight tractor-trailer that was turning left from a westbound lane into a driveway.

Harmon said it appeared the motorcycle was also traveling at a high speed when the accident occurred.

The motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene, Allen said, and no citations were issued.

It is time that cyclist should obey the same laws as the rest of us have to. Too many of them drive at a very HIGH rate of speed, and this is what could happen, I hear them all the time here where I live, they get on the 4 lane and away they go. So sad that someone is now in eternity, and leaves friends and family behind. Cyclists SO DOWN DON"T BE STUPID you life does matter!

The life of other people that may be killed trying to avoid one of these nut case drivers is more important.

I had one pass me the other day on I440 doing about 150. Like my grandpappy said, "Speed on fool, hell ain't half full". All you get is one mistake.

That it is DDDKA. It's awful hard to survive bad decisions when you put yourself so close to danger and harm.
