Glendale police have identified the man killed in motorcycle crash Friday night.

The victim is Daniel Carr, 45, of Peoria, according to police.

The crash happened Friday around 8 p.m. near 53rd Avenue and Cactus.

Officials said Carr and a woman, whose name was not provided, were traveling on a motorcycle and had struck a parked vehicle.

"Glendale Police Vehicular Crimes detectives determined the motorcycle was traveling westbound and failed to negotiate a right curve between Windrose Drive and Aster Drive," Glendale Police Sgt. Scott Waite said.  

The fire department had to lift the parked vehicle to pull the 46-year-old female from the wreckage.  

The woman was taken to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries. She remains in the intensive case unit.

It is unknown if there was any impairment.

Glendale police say neither victim was wearing a helmet.
