PHOENIX — A Sunday morning motorcycle accident in Buckeye left one man dead and another injured, according to police.

Donna Rossi, Buckeye Police public information officer, said police and fire units responded to the crash just outside of Love’s Travel Stop on Miller Road south of Interstate 10 around 7:30 a.m.

She said the accident involved two motorcycles that were riding with a group of friends.

One of the riders sustained severe injuries while the other was hurt but still alert.
