ARLINGTON (1080 KRLD) - A bicycle rider has died after crashing into a tree in Arlington over the weekend.

On Saturday, 911 callers reported the man was down on an unpaved bike trail at River Legacy Park. He appeared to be unconscious and other trail users did CPR until paramedics could get there.

The trail is in a rugged, remote part of the park and firefighters need a specialized vehicle to get in there and carry the victim out.

He was taken to the hospital but it was too late to save his life.
