Tucson, AZ – Man Killed in Fatal Motorcycle Wreck at Golf Links Rd & Swan Rd
Tucson, AZ (November 3, 2019) – A man has died following a motorcycle crash on Golf Links Road, west of South Swan Road, on Sunday.
According to reports from the Tucson Police Department, it appears that the accident occurred when a sedan struck the motorcycle as both were traveling eastbound on Gold Links. Eastbound Golf Links was closed and westbound traffic was restricted as a result of the crash, the department said.

It is unclear if the other driver was transported to the hospital or treated at the scene.
