A man on a motorcycle died early Monday evening not far from downtown Wichita, when his bike collided with an SUV west of Seneca & McLean Boulevard.
The victim was 40-year-old Quincy Thomas; he died at the scene.
Thomas was riding a Suzuki motorcycle on McLean, when he hit a Hyundai Santa Fe driven by a 77-year-old man.
Investigators say the Hyundai was on N. Vine Street, making a left-hand turn on to McLean, and that Thomas had been traveling at a high rate of speed before the collision.
This is the 17th deadly traffic accident this year on Wichita streets, and the seventh involving a motorcycle.
Thomas was not wearing a helmet.
