Officers were dispatched to the Avenue 20 and Road 16 intersection in Madera County at 6:18 p.m. for a report of an automobile crash. When the police came, they discovered that a motorcycle and a truck had collided.

The rider, a 17-year-old lad, was recognized by authorities as having passed away at the scene. Officers claimed that after looking into the matter they discovered that the motorcycle rider had failed to signal before entering the intersection.

The vehicle, which had the right-of-way according to the investigating team, struck the motorcycle as it landed in its path. The adolescent was knocked off his motorcycle as a result of the collision between the truck and the motorcycle.

At the time of the collision, the motorcycle rider was wearing a helmet. Although the cause of the collision is still being looked into, police stated they do not believe that alcohol or drugs had a part.
