Man Killed In Fayetteville Motorcycle Wreck Identified

Robert Robinson, 23, of Fayetteville has been identified as the man who was killed Saturday (Feb. 8) in a motorcycle wreck in Fayetteville, police said on Sunday (Feb. 9).

Robinson, the driver of the motorcycle, rear-ended a Toyota Corolla in front of Butterfield Trail Village at 1923 E. Joyce Blvd. just before 2 p.m., officials said.

Robinson was riding a motorcycle in the left lane when he ran into the Toyota, which had stopped to make a left turn, police said. Investigators said witnesses told them the motorcycle was going fast and tried to swerve to miss the car. Robinson was knocked off the motorcycle, and a Nissan Xterra in the right lane ran him over, investigators said.

No other injuries were reported, officials said.
