A 71 year old man was killed in Arlington Thursday afternoon after his motorcycle collided with an suv.
Officers responded to a crash around 4:30 p.m. near N. Center Street and Thannisch Drive.
Upon arrival officers found Laurin Carlton on the ground. He was transported to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead.
While on the scene officers learned that the 49 year old driver of a 2021 Ford EcoSport was trying to turn left and a motorcycle collided into it.
The man on the motorcycle was thrown off and not wearing a helmet.
The driver of the EcoSport remained at the scene until officers arrived. He was cited for failure to yield once it was determined he was at fault.
They do not believe alcohol played a factor in the crash.
