ANTELOPE VALLEY – A 57-year-old Lancaster man was killed Friday afternoon after his Harley-Davidson motorcycle drifted into the wrong lane and collided with a hearse.
The collision happened around 12:24 p.m., Friday (Aug. 17) on Angeles Crest Highway (SR-2), according to a California Highway Patrol Report.
David Duane Manos Jr. was traveling eastbound on Angeles Crest Highway, at an unknown rate of speed, when his motorcycle drifted to the left, crossed the centerline of the road, and ended up in the westbound lane – directly in the path of a 1964 Cadillac hearse, the report states.
The two vehicles collided, and Manos was thrown from his bike onto the roadway, resulting in fatal injuries.
The driver of the hearse, 77-year-old Tehachapi resident John Joseph Koresko, was not injured in the crash, according to the CHP report.
