Noted pediatric cancer doctor killed in Scottsdale motorcycle crash

The 6/8/2015 morning crash as described is a classic left-hook; where the victim was riding straight ahead and crashed with a trailer being pulled behind a pickup whose driver apparently mis-judged the situation either the closing speed or perhaps forgot he was pulling a trailer.

Phoenix doctor killed in crash was renowned child-cancer expert …Dr. Robert Arceci, 65, was on his way to work when his motorcycle collided with a landscaping truck that was turning in front of him at 69th Street and Shea Boulevard in Scottsdale…

As noted in a 2013 article about a motorist who killed a motorized bicyclist via a left-hook: A bad left (28-772) is a 28-672 enabler — that is to say, if the driver made a bad left, he should be charged with 28-672, “Causing serious physical injury or death by a moving violation”, a misdemeanor.
