Fallen rider is @erick.s13 . Unfortunately the accident in Fullerton this morning has been a confirmed fatality 🙏🏻 A 21-year-old motorcyclist died Tuesday morning, April 17, after colliding with a car in Fullerton.
Police got a call of motorcyclist down at West Orangethorpe and South Courtney avenues and found the man with serious injuries laying in a lane, Fullerton police Sgt. Jon Radus said. “Officers immediately began conducting CPR,” Radus said. Fullerton firefighters arrived and continued to treat the man and took him to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 8:07 a.m. Based on the preliminary investigation it appears the motorcyclist was riding eastbound on Orangethorpe Avenue approaching Courtney Avenue when a 2018 Honda Civic tried to make a westbound turn onto Orangethorpe from Courtney. “The motorcycle and Honda Civic collided in the eastbound lanes of Orangethorpe Ave, causing the 21-year-old motorcyclist to be ejected from his motorcycle,” Radus said. The driver of the Civic, a 21-year-old woman, stayed at the scene and cooperated with investigators. It does not appear that drugs, alcohol or speed played factors in the crash.
The investigation is ongoing. Anyone who has information about the crash is asked to call traffic investigators at 714-738-5313. Those who want to stay anonymous can call Orange County Crime Stoppers at 1-855-TIP-OCCS. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

I’d much rather be doing this than to be stuck inside with the cruddy weather outside. It was cold ripping it out to Port Dover on Friday and so many bikers came anyways. Did you do Dover on Friday and did you ride? —————————————

Soooo. People drive like assholes here. I got presented with the opportunity to head on a BMW driving on my side of the road or a construction fence. I chose fence 😬 #dressfortheslidenotfortheride
