Swedish citizen killed in Seligman motorcycle accident

SELIGMAN--A 77-year old motorcycle rider from Sweden was killed Sunday in an accident on Route 66 at Fort Rock Road in Seligman Sunday. The man has not been identified pending next of kin in the European state.

The Yavapai Sheriff's Office reports that according to witnesses, the rider was apparently not paying attention while following an SUV support vehicle.
