A motorcycle’s rider was killed and his female passenger was seriously injured in a late-night wreck with a car last night, according to Muskogee police.

The rider, whose name has not yet been released, was pronounced dead at the scene on North York Street. His passenger was taken by helicopter to Saint John’s Hospital in Tulsa.

The driver of the car was arrested for driving under the influence “and several other charges,” according to police.

The names of the victims and suspect will be released when next of kin is notified, police say.

UPDATE 9:37 a.m.: The motorcycle, a 2004 Harley-Davidson ridden by Josh Jackson, 32, was southbound on York Street. A white 2007 Dodge Nitro, driven by Addison Clark, 29, was northbound and turned west in front of the motorcycle, according to police.

Jackson’s wife, Emily, 27, was his passenger.

Clark has been charged with driving under the influence, driving under suspension, no insurance and manslaughter, personal injury accident while under the influence and transporting an open container. She had seven previous arrests dating back to 2012 for public intoxication, and as recent as April of this year for failure to appear in court.
