California Highway Patrol reported a motorcyclist travelling north of Warner Springs Tuesday afternoon, died in a crash on State Route 79 north of Chihuahua Valley Road.


The crash happened just after 12:30 p.m. when a 59-year-old man riding a motorcycle, failed to negotiate a curve in the road and slid into the opposite lane. The driver of an oncoming Ford E350 motorhome tried to brake, but was unable to prevent striking the motorcyclist according to officers.

The motorcyclist was ejected from the bike and died at the scene. Alcohol or drugs do not appear to be a factor in the crash and the investigation is ongoing.
