PHOENIX – A motorcyclist was killed Sunday night in a multivehicle wreck in Phoenix, authorities said.
Officers responded to a collision call on Cactus Road near Paradise Village Parkway around 9 p.m., the Phoenix Police Department said.

King was pronounced dead at the scene.
The motorcycle’s speed appears to have been a factor, police said. The drivers of the other vehicles, who were uninjured, showed no signs of impairment.
