46-Year-Old Clovis Motorcyclist Dies after High-Speed Pursuit near North West Avenue

 
FRESNO, CA (October 17, 2018) – A man was killed in a motorcycle crash early Wednesday morning following a high-speed pursuit in Central Fresno. The deceased victim was later identified as 46-year-old Robert Cooper, a resident of Clovis.
