OGDEN -- A 50-year-old man died after his motorcycle struck a car Friday afternoon.
The man, who was not immediately identified, was driving west on 12th Street, and a woman in her mid-50s was driving east in a bronze Ford Focus, said Weber County Sheriff's Lt. Mark Lowther.
Investigators are not sure what all the circumstances were when the woman turned north at 1200 West, but as she turned through the intersection, the man crashed into the side of her car around 4:15 p.m.
The man was taken to McKay-Dee Hospital in critical condition and was pronounced dead on arrival. The sheriff's office will notify his family before releasing his name.
According to his driver's license, the man lived in Salt Lake City, Lowther said.
A woman who was helping install equipment at a new 7-Eleven at the intersection heard the crash and ran outside. She said the man was in such bad shape that he "looked like he was going to die right there."
The motorcycle rider was wearing a helmet.
As the weather gets warmer, more and more motorcycles will be on the road, Lowther said. He advised that everyone who is about to change lanes or turn be sure to look out for motorcyclists.
In particular, the sheriff's office has seen more motorcycle accidents recently that involved someone trying to make a left turn, Lowther said.
The investigation into the crash is ongoing.
