Covina man killed in Rowland Heights motorcycle crash


A Covina man died in a Saturday night motorcycle crash on Colima Road in Rowland Heights, authorities said.
The identity of the motorcyclist, described by the California Highway Patrol as a 33-year-old Covina man, was not yet released by coroner’s officials on Sunday.
The solo-vehicle crash took place about 10:40 p.m. on Colima Road, just west of Fairway Drive, Officer R. Finfrock of the California Highway Patrol’s Santa Fe Springs-area office said in a written statement.
He said the man was riding a 2009 Harley-Davidson Softail Deluxe east on Colima, “at a high rate of speed,” when the motorcycle struck the center median.
“The collision with the center median caused (the rider) to be ejected form the motorcycle and the motorcycle to overturn,” according to Finfrock. “At this time, no other vehicles have been determined to have been involved in this traffic collision.”
Paramedics took the injured motorcyclist to Pomona Valley Medical Center, where he succumbed to his injuries at 1:17 a.m. Sunday, Finfrock said.
The crash remains under investigation. Anyone with information can reach the CHP’s Santa Fe Springs-area office at 562-868-0503.
