FRESNO, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) — A motorcyclist was killed following a crash in northeast Fresno on Sunday afternoon, according to the Fresno Police Department.
The crash happened at Herndon and Blythe avenues at around 3 p.m.
Police say a man in his 30s was at a stoplight and likely accelerated his motorcycle too quickly, causing it to lose control and crash into a tree.
