The motorcyclist who died in a fatal crash Tuesday at Nevada Avenue and Winters Drive has been identified as 28-year-old Tyler Roe.

Roe was killed after crashing into a box van that turned left in front of him as both drivers approached the intersection on a yellow light.

The van driver, Jericho Benson, 23 was not injured in the crash. He was cited for careless driving resulting in death.

Police said Benson was southbound on Nevada when he made a left hand turn onto Winters Drive. Roe, who was heading north, was unable to stop before hitting the rear end of the van.
