A Corinth man died at the scene of a collision between the motorcycle he was riding and a pickup truck Wednesday afternoon.
Clay Bench, 24, suffered blunt force trauma to his stomach and abdomen, according to the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s report.
Denton Police Traffic Sgt. Jim Brett said Thursday that a pickup truck was westbound on Pockrus Paige Road and turning left onto Fox Sedge Lane at 4:22 p.m. Bench attempted to pass the pickup on the left, the sergeant said, and struck the driver’s rear door on the truck. Bench was declared dead at the scene. The driver of the pickup suffered minor injuries, Brett said.
No citations were issued.
“We have learned that the motorcycle was reported stolen in Arlington in early November, Brett said.
