Hemet Man Killed in Temecula Motorcycle Accident on Highway 79 and Anza Road

Temecula, California (January 31, 2020) – A motorcyclist was killed Thursday evening in a traffic accident on Highway 79 just outside of Temecula, according to a report by the California Highway Patrol.

The deadly accident occurred just after 6:30 p.m. Thursday, January 30 near the intersection of Highway 79 and Anza Road.

As per the CHP report, a 34-year-old Hemet man was riding a 2016 Harley-Davidson motorcycle southeast on Highway 79 when he drifted into opposing traffic on a curve and collided head-on with an oncoming 2009 Volvo semi-truck.

The motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene. His name has not been disclosed pending notification of family.

The operator of the semi-truck was not injured.

It is undetermined if alcohol or drugs were factors in the accident.

Authorities closed Highway 79 in both directions following the crash. As of 9:45 p.m., lanes were reopened.

The accident remains under investigation.

“Far too many motorcycle collisions are caused by the carelessness or recklessness of other motorists. Sadly, when this occurs, motorcyclists are the ones who tend to suffer the vast majority of injuries”, according to Arin Khodaverdian, Managing Partner and CEO Alpine Law Group. Under California’s rule of comparative negligence, a victim may be able to collect compensation for injuries and other damages even if you were partly at fault for the accident.
