An Arkansan was killed when his motorcycle collided with a car Tuesday night, authorities say.

The crash happened shortly before 10 p.m. on U.S. 62 in Fayetteville, according to a preliminary crash report from Arkansas State Police.

Authorities say a newer-model Toyota Camry was traveling west on the highway when Weston Fitts, 21, made a left turn onto U.S. 62 from Old Farmington Road on a 2007 Suzuki motorcycle.

The motorcycle traveled into the Camry's path and the vehicles collided, the report states.

Fitts was reportedly treated at Washington Regional Medical Center, where he died from his injuries. No other injuries were reported.

Conditions were said to be clear and dry at the time of the wreck.

At least 168 people have died in traffic crashes on Arkansas roads so far this year, preliminary state police statistics show.

CORRECTION: Weston Fitts, 21, was killed Tuesday night when his motorcycle collided with a car on U.S. 62 in Fayetteville. Due to incorrect information on an Arkansas State Police report, an earlier version of this story listed him in the wrong vehicle.

    The driver of the car was killed? How odd is that? I would have guess it was the motorcyclist that was killed.
