PHOENIX — A motorcycle driver who wasn’t wearing a helmet was killed in a collision with an SUV on Thursday, authorities said.

Officers responded to the area of Tatum Boulevard and Bell Road around 11:30 a.m. and found Gavin Green suffering from serious injuries, the Phoenix Police Department said.

Green, 30, died of his injuries after being taken to a hospital.

The woman driving the SUV remained at the scene and didn’t show any signs of impairment, police said.

The incident remains under investigation. No other information was made available.
