Arlington, Texas – In a tragic turn of events, an elderly man of 89 years succumbed to his injuries following a horrific collision on Sunday morning in Arlington, involving his electric bicycle and a pickup truck, as stated by Arlington Police Department.

At approximately 11:25 a.m., police units were dispatched urgently to the scene of the incident, located in the vicinity of the 6700 block of New York Avenue, proximate to the well-known Lynn Creek Trail.
