A car/motorcycle accident Thursday night has resulted in the death of the motorcycle rider.

The investigation by the Chattanooga Police says that the motorcycle was initially traveling south on Dayton Boulevard as a Chrysler PT Cruiser was exiting the McDonald's parking lot in an attempt to cross Dayton Blvd and continue east on Midvale Avenue.

The PT Cruiser pulled into the path of the motorcycle, and was struck by the motorcycle in the driver-side door.

The motorcycle rider was thrown from the motorcycle, and then slid across Dayton Boulevard, where the rider then struck a northbound truck.

The rider was then transported to Erlanger Medical center, and was pronounced dead a short time later.

The investigation is still under way.
