The fatal collision occurred just before 7 p.m. Friday (June 28) in the 1300 Block of East Avenue I in Lancaster, according to Sgt. Dave Jennings of the Lancaster Sheriff’s Station.
The motorcyclist, whose name has not yet been released, was riding westbound on Avenue I when a 1995 Nissan Maxima headed eastbound on Avenue I made a left turn into the Friendly Village mobile home park, directly into the path of the motorcyclist.
The motorcyclist laid his bike down and slid into the passenger side of the Maxima. He suffered major injuries and died at the scene.
Neither speed nor alcohol seems to be a factor in the collision, Jennings stated.
Authorities have not released the name of the Nissan Maxima’s driver, pending further investigation.
Sheriff’s detectives continue to investigate the fatal collision and are asking anyone with information on this incident to contact the Lancaster Sheriff’s Station Traffic Enforcement Team at 661-948-8466.
