Speed believed to be a factor in deadly Arlington motorcycle crash, police say

A man was killed in a motorcycle crash Tuesday evening, the Arlington Police Department announced in a news release.

At around 6:40 p.m., police responded to the 1200 block of South Center Street to investigate a motorcycle crash.

When officers arrived at the scene they found the driver of the motorcycle, a 23-year-old man, lying unresponsive on the road, according to the release.
