Investigators believe a motorcycle was traveling eastbound on Bardin Road while an SUV was traveling in the westbound lanes. As the Mercury Mariner made a left hand turn onto 4700 Racquet Club Drive the motorcycle struck the SUV.

The driver of the motorcycle was transported to a local hospital where he was later pronounced deceased from his injuries. The Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office has identified him as a 19-year-old man of Fort Worth.
