On Wednesday, Lawrence police identified the victim of Tuesday's fatal motorcycle accident as Douglas W. Puckett, 43, of Portage, Ind.
Police said Puckett was traveling east on Clinton Parkway when his motorcycle collided with a semitrailer turning south onto Iowa Street at 4:26 p.m. Puckett died at the scene.
Police identified the driver of the semitrailer as Daniel L. Arnold, 52, of Texas.
The cause of the accident remains under investigation. Police Sgt. Bill Cory said no charges have been filed.
The intersection of 23rd and Iowa streets was closed for more than six hours after the accident while police investigated the crash.
Puckett's brother, Ed Puckett, 59, said his brother had been riding motorcycles for about four years and loved to travel.
"He'd get on his motorcycle and just take off for a weekend or a week," he said.
The Pucketts grew up in Portage, a town about 30 miles east of Chicago. While Ed Puckett and his sister Carolyn, 60, both moved to Lake Havasu, Ariz., Douglas Puckett stayed in Portage, where he worked as an operating engineer.
