A motorcyclist was killed Saturday afternoon after a two-vehicle crash at Benton Road and I-220.

Witnesses say the motorcyclist was driving south on Benton Road when an SUV drove into their path, causing the motorcycle to crash into the SUV.

It happened shortly before 3 p.m.

The driver of the SUV, 76-year old Manfred Kurt Johncher of Bossier City, was taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Johncher was ticketed for failure to yield. A blood test will also be given to determine if alcohol was a factor in the crash.
