    Grand Prairie police have arrested a truck driver who failed to yield, causing a fatal wreck.

    Investigators said that Angel Ceballos, 20, was riding his motorcycle northbound on the 700 block of N. Belt Line Road when a Chevrolet truck towing a 42-foot trailer that was traveling southbound made a left turn in front of Ceballos, attempting to turn into a gas station.

    The driver of the Chevrolet, identified as 30-year-old Jesse Merchant, failed to yield to Ceballos and caused an accident.

    Ceballos was transported to a nearby hospital where he was later pronounced deceased.
