Hesperia Motorcycle Crashed by Semi-Truck

On the morning of July 4, a rider was killed in a Hesperia motorcycle accident involving a tractor trailer.

The fatal collision occurred at the intersection of Ninth Avenue and Bear Valley Road. When units arrived at the scene, they found a blue semi with a heavily damaged passenger side door and a black Yamaha motorcycle.

The motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene. A second person was taken to an area hospital for injuries.

A witness told officials that the motorcyclist was traveling east on Bear Valley Road at a reasonable speed when the big rig made a left turn into his path, cutting him off.
