Rider Dies after Struck Head-On By Pickup Truck on Highway 160 in Ryde

 
RYDE, CA (October 12, 2019) – A 70-year-old motorcyclist died after he was struck head-on by a pickup truck Saturday afternoon in an unincorporated Sacramento County.
 
The crash happened around 2:15 p.m. on Highway 160 near Highway 220.
 
According to the CHP, a 34-year-old man was driving a Ford F-250 northbound when he did not see traffic stopped in front of him and swerved to the left.
 
The Ford rear-ended two vehicles before crossing over the double-yellow lines into oncoming traffic on the opposite side of the highway. It then struck head-on a 2010 Harley-Davidson motorcycle.
 
The impact forced the 70-year-old rider to hit a 73-year-old rider on a 2000 Harley Davison who was cruising alongside.
 
CHP officials said both motorcyclists were thrown to the roadway and the 70-year-old rider died at the scene. The Sacramento County Coroner’s Office did not release the victim’s identity pending next of kin notification.
 
Meanwhile, the 73-year-old rider was taken to a local hospital for treatment of minor injuries.
 
The drivers in the Ford and the two other vehicles were not injured.
 
Authorities closed the Highway 160 for about two hours while they investigated the incident. They said alcohol and drugs were not a factor in the crash.
