PHOENIX — A motorcyclist has died following a crash in north Phoenix on Friday night.

According to Phoenix police, officers responded to reports of a serious crash between a vehicle and a motorcycle near 21st Avenue and Thunderbird Road around 7:00 p.m. on Friday.

Police say a Nissan Versa being driven by a 20-year-old woman was traveling eastbound on Thunderbird Road when the driver attempted to make a left-hand turn into a private drive.
