On Tuesday, September 13, 2016, a head-on motorcycle collision ended in fatality, in Madera County. The pickup truck accident took place on Highway 145, at around 7:10 AM.
A 23-year-old motorcyclist from Madera, was traveling south on a Kawasaki Ninja on State Route 145, near Avenue 11.
At the same time a Toyota Tacoma truck, driven by Crisistomo Leal, 55, of Orosi, was headed north on the highway. The pickup truck attempted to make a left-hand turn onto Avenue 11, right into the path of the biker.
The motorcycle had no time to avoid the Toyota and crashed head-on into the vehicle.
The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.
Leal suffered minor injuries, but was not taken to the hospital.
