Durham, N.C. — A motorcyclist died Friday morning after running a red light and crashing into a tractor-trailer in Durham, according to the state Highway Patrol.
The motorcyclist's name will not be released until family is notified. The crash happened near Park and Davis drives shortly before 9:30 a.m.
Troopers say the 1994 Honda motorcycle was traveling north on Davis Drive when the rider ran a red light and crashed into the right side of a 2006 Sterling tractor-trailer that was turning left onto the Interstate 40 eastbound ramp.
A viewer sent WRAL News video of the crash, which showed the motorcycle on its side and emergency responders at the scene.
