In a devastating incident over the weekend, a fatal motorcycle crash occurred in Kings County, claiming the life of a Lemoore man. The accident took place on Saturday afternoon in the westbound lanes of Highway 198.
According to KGPE-TV, the California Highway Patrol (CHP) promptly responded to the scene near 7th Avenue, east of Hanford, after receiving reports around 12:47 p.m.
Their preliminary investigation suggests that an 18-year-old driver operating a Toyota pickup truck was traveling eastbound when, under unknown circumstances, the truck veered left. Crossing a dirt median, it collided head-on with a Harley-Davidson motorcycle.
Tragically, the rider of the motorcycle, a 52-year-old man from Lemoore, lost his life at the scene. A 49-year-old woman who was a passenger on the motorcycle was rushed to a local hospital for medical treatment. Both individuals were wearing helmets at the time of the collision.
The California Highway Patrol investigators are currently working diligently to determine the precise circumstances surrounding the Kings County motorcycle crash.
