October 21, 2009–David Valdez of Fresno was killed when he collidied with a pickup west of Fresno on Shaw avenue last Wednesday. He was 26 years of age and riding without a helmet or lights, according to early reports. The motorcycle was an off-road Yamaha. The 6:30 am accident occurred when the truck turned into the path of the cycle which may have been traveling at a high rate of speed.
Yet to be investigated are the exact speeds of each vehicle, whether lights were required at that time of day, other lighting available, the use of turn signals, and related issues.
