This past Sunday afternoon in Scottsdale, Arizona, a car-motorcycle accident took place that took the life of a 19-year-old male rider.
The crash happened at around 3:30 p.m. in north Scottsdale, at the intersection of Scottsdale Road and Dynamite Boulevard.
Scottsdale Police Department spokesman, Officer David Pubins, stated that the motorcyclist, Trevor Fehrenbach, was heading southbound on Scottsdale Road when a northbound sport utility vehicle attempted to make a left turn onto Dynamite Boulevard, causing a violent collision at the intersection of the two roads.
Emergency personnel arrived on the scene to find Fehrenbach with critical injuries. The rider was transported to Scottsdale Healthcare Osborn Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
Officer Pubins informed that Fehrenbach was wearing his safety helmet. The officer stated that the investigation is still in its early stages, and investigating detectives have not yet determined the precise cause of the car wreck.
It has been reported that speed on the part of the motorcyclist may have been a factor in the crash.
In 2011, Fehrenbach graduated from Columbia Falls High School in Columbia Falls, Montana. He had traveled to Arizona in the fall to attend the Motorcycle Mechanic Institute in Phoenix, AZ, and had just completed the program on April 29.
The intersection was shut down for several hours as police investigated and the scene was cleaned up.
