California Highway Patrol officers dispatched Friday morning to Highway 18 where a fatal motorcycle crash has just occurred, prompting a SigAlert and lead to the shutdown of the highway in both directions for a brief period.
CHP officers announced that the accident happened around 11 a.m.
A motorcycle is suspected to have swerved into the southbound lanes from the northbound lanes, hitting a vehicle in the process, CHP said.
The motorcyclist didn’t survive, and the bike burst into flames, officials announced.
Traffic was reopened to single lanes in both directions shortly before 12:30 p.m. while the CHP continued to investigate the crash.
The name of the victim will be released after next of kin has been notified.
