HESPERIA – A male motorcycle rider died after losing control of his motorcycle near Peach Avenue and Atlantic Street on Thursday, September 6, 2018.
The single-vehicle collision involving only the motorcycle is believed to have occurred sometime while it was still dark outside between Wednesday, September 5, 2018, and Thursday, September 6, 2018. The collision was reported at around noon when the reporting party came across the collision off the roadway while passing through the area. The reporting party reported that there was no other vehicle in the area.
When deputies arrived they located the collision scene just east of Peach Avenue in a vacant lot with thick vegetation off of the roadway. The motorcycle rider, who was described by authorities only as a white male adult was unresponsive and determined to be deceased as a result of injuries sustained in the collision. Through investigation, authorities determined that the rider was riding south on Peach Avenue, on a 2002 grey Suzuki RS sportbike at an unknown rate of speed. The rider crossed over the northbound lanes leaving the roadway onto the northbound shoulder. He lost control in the open field and was ejected from the motorcycle. The rider and motorcycle came to a rest on the property. Authorities believe that the collision occurred several hours before the collision scene was located and reported.
Investigators are continuing to process the scene of the collision to determine the exact cause of the collision and the Coroner will assist in making a positive identification of the rider. Peach Avenue was only closed momentarily during the investigation as the scene was processed.
Anyone who may have witnessed the collision or have any information that may assist investigators is asked to contact Deputy Jeremy Deberg or Sergeant Doug Hubbard at the Hesperia Station.
