Motorcyclist killed in University Ave. crash

Posted By on Fri, Sep 30, 2011 at 1:13 PM

Robert Birdsong, 68, of Little Rock was fatally injured shortly before 10 a.m. Thursday when his motorycycle slid into a turning car in the 2100 block of North University Avenue.

Little Rock police said Birdsong, who lived nearby on Hawthorne and was southbound, tried to stop when a northbound station wagon driven by Nancy Jackman, 33, of Little Rock, turned left in front of him toward Beacon Street. Police said she told officers she'd misjudged the speed of the oncoming rider and stopped. Birdsong layed his motorcycle down, but was unable to stop before sliding into her car.
