Motorcycle Crash Ends In Fatality

For many people, traveling by motorcycle is a wonderful way to travel and to see the county. Arizona is blessed with beautiful scenery and decent weather much of the year that it makes traveling by motorcycle cross country very attractive. At Zanes Law, because bikers are more exposed to the risks of the road and are less protective than those who choose to travel by car, accidents involving motorcycles can often cause severe injuries or a greater chance of fatalities.

This may have been what happened to a Minnesota motorcyclist who was killed in an accident in Tucson on Thursday, January 17th. KOLD TV 13 reported that a 66-year-old Minnesota resident was killed in an accident which occurred at Ft. Lowell and N. Campbell in Tucson. The motorcyclist and a motorist collided and the intersection at around 4:00 p.m.

The victim was identified as James Nordrum of Minnesota. The driver and a passenger in the vehicle were transported to an area hospital to be treated for minor injuries.

In a Tweet by Officer Frank Magos with the Tucson Police Department said that initially the accident was reported as a hit-and-run. Investigators later affirmed that the driver of the passenger vehicle had remained at the scene until released by police. Officer Magos’ tweet was later corrected to reflect the corrected information.

The driver was not cited and no charges are pending in the case.
