66-year-old man died in Tulare County motorcycle crash


TULARE COUNTY, California (KSEE/KGPE) – A 66-year-old man died in a motorcycle crash near State Route 245, just south of Boyd Drive in Tulare County. 

The CHP said the 66-year-old rider was unable to negotiate a curve and allowed his 1999 Harley Davidson to cross the northbound lane until it traveled off the east side of the roadway. 

The motorcycle entered a dirt crevice and struck a shallow embankment. The rider was ejected from the motorcycle which ultimately landed on top of him on the east shoulder.

The rider was wearing a helmet but suffered fatal injuries. 

Alcohol is not considered to be a factor.
