A teenage motorcyclist was killed in a collision with a car in Lakeland Sunday morning.

Steven E. Altman, 17, of Lakeland was southbound on North Socrum Loop Road at 9:30 a.m. Sunday when a northbound 2002 Mercury Marquis, driven by Mary J. Yon, 73, of Lakeland, made a left turn onto West Daughtery Road in front of the motorcycle.

The bike hit the car's right side, and Altman died before he could be taken to the hospital, Lakeland police said.
