A motorcyclist was killed in Durham on Saturday after colliding with a vehicle.
Durham police said the accident happened near the intersection of Miami Boulevard and Robinhood Road at about 2:30 p.m.
Donald Riley, the driver of a 2012 Kawasaki ZX1000 J motorcycle, was driving northbound on N. Miami Boulevard.
Riley, 47, was pronounced dead at the scene.
The crash happened when Arita Barahona, the driver of a 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser, attempted to cross Miami Boulevard from Robinhood Road. The motorcyclist crashed into the Cruiser’s driver’s door.
Barahona failed to yield the right-of-way, according to Durham police’s preliminary investigation.
Barahona and her passenger, Jonathan Obando, were taken to Duke Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Police charged Barahona with misdemeanor death by motor vehicle.
Miami Boulevard was closed for a few hours at the scene.
Neither drugs, alcohol nor speed seemed to be a factor, police said.
Durham police continue to investigate.
