A 38-year-old North Richland Hills man died early Sunday from injuries suffered the night before when police say his motorcycle crashed into the side of a vehicle that had turned in front of him in northwest Fort Worth.

Michael Wall was pronounced dead at 5:34 a.m. Sunday at John Peter Smith Hospital.

Sgt. Rodney Bangs, supervisor of the traffic investigation unit, said Wall was eastbound in the 9600 block of Boat Club Road about 11:25 p.m. Saturday when a westbound vehicle tried to make a left turn into an apartment complex in front of him.

The driver of the vehicle was hospitalized. His condition is not known.

Bangs said the collision is under investigation to determine whether any charges will be sought against the driver.

Wall's death was the second motorcycle fatality in Fort Worth over the past several days.

On Friday night, Fredrick Jefferson, 37, of Fort Worth was killed and two people in a car were hospitalized after a collision at East Berry Street and Edgewood Terrace South in southeast Fort Worth.

According to police, Jefferson was eastbound on East Berry, traveling at a very high rate of speed, when his motorcycle collided with a 2006 Dodge Strata that was northbound on Edgewood. Bangs said police are investigating witness reports that Jefferson may have been popping a wheelie when the collision occurred.
