A motorcyclist was killed in a head-on crash near San Jacinto Tuesday. The fatal accident happened on Gilman Springs Road around 2:30 p.m. The motorcyclist was ejected from his bike and was pronounced dead at the scene.
According to the California Highway Patrol (CHP), the motorcyclist was traveling east at a high rate of speed when he failed to negotiate a curve in the road. The Yamaha motorcycle crossed into the westbound lanes and crashed head-on with a Chevrolet Colorado truck. The motorcyclist was then ejected onto the road.
The driver and passenger of the pickup truck were apparently not injured in the collision. The driver has been identified as 58-year-old Donald Boring of Yucaipa.
The cause of the head-on crash is still being investigated. Police have not yet ruled out drugs or alcohol, and other details are still unknown. The victim’s name is being withheld until the family is notified.
