The fatal single-vehicle crash happened around 10 p.m., Friday, Jan. 3 on the Avenue D onramp to the southbound lanes of the Antelope Valley (14) Freeway, according to a California Highway Patrol report.
Nicholas Wilson was riding a black Suzuki GSXR 750 eastbound on Avenue D when he attempted to enter the southbound lanes of the 14 Freeway.
Wilson lost control of his motorcycle as it entered the on-ramp, and he was thrown from the bike before he crashed into a guardrail rail east of the on-ramp, according to the CHP report.
Wilson, who was wearing a helmet at the time of the collision, was pronounced dead at the scene.
“Speed may have been a factor in this collision,” states the CHP report.
The investigation is still ongoing.
