motorcycleA visitor from Sweden was killed in a Sunday traffic accident on Route 66 near Seligman. The collision involving a motorcycle and an SUV near Fort Rock Road is under investigation by the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office. Agency spokesman Dwight D’Evelyn said the 77 year-old man from Sweden was operating a motorcycle and following the SUV, running into the back of the rig not recognizing it had stopped. “Several witnesses were present and indicated the rider had locked his brakes and attempted to swerve around the SUV just before the collision,” D’Evelyn said. He said the motorcyclist was dead at the scene of the accident. His name is withheld until next of kin can be notified overseas.
