PHOENIX — One person has died and two others have been injured in a serious motorcycle crash on Friday night.

Phoenix firefighters say two motorcycles were involved in a collision at around 7:30 p.m. at 38th Avenue and Bethany Home Road.

When crews arrived on the scene, they located two riders who needed to be transported to a hospital, and one other who was pronounced dead at the scene.

Phoenix police say a truck was turning left when it struck a motorcycle with a man and woman.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene, and the woman in her 30's was transported in extremely critical condition.

A second motorcycle that was driving at a high rate of speed lost control after approaching the collision and the driver, a man in his 50's, was transported in critical condition.

The driver of the truck was not injured, and police say impairment is not believed to be a factor at this time.
