A motorcyclist is dead following a crash just south of Phoenix.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety said the two-vehicle crash happened at 12:15 p.m. on westbound Interstate 10 at State Route 347. 

DPS said 52-year-old Robert Hemming of Wittmann rear-ended a truck that was slowing down due to an earlier crash in the area. 

According to DPS, Hemming was not wearing a helmet and was transported to an area hospital for treatment. Officials later said the motorcyclist died from his injuries.
