A 70-year old motorcyclist was killed in a 5-vehicle crash in south Sacramento on Saturday afternoon, October 12, 2019. The motorcyclist was reportedly hit head-on by a truck that had crossed into his lane from the opposite side of traffic, just right after an accident that involved 3 other vehicles, while the rider was riding his motorcycle. A 34-year old man was driving a Ford F-250 travelling north at approximately 2:16 pm on State Route 160, close to State Route 220, when he did not see traffic stop in front of him, and swerved onto the left. The Ford struck the back of 2 vehicles before crossing over the double yellow lines into oncoming traffic on the opposite side of the highway. The motorcyclist was hit head on by the Ford truck, causing the said rider to force his body to struck another 73-year old motorcyclist who was riding his motorcycle alongside. Both motorcyclists were thrown onto the roadway during the crash. The 73-year old motorcyclist sustained minor injuries from the crash. No drivers nor other occupants of the other vehicles involved in the crash were reportedly injured.
