A motorcyclist was killed in a crash on State Route 74 Sunday, prompting the partial closure of the highway in the Santa Ana mountains.

The crash occurred at about 9:10 a.m. on the eastbound lane north of Rocky Road, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The CHP reported that a motorcycle slammed into a guardrail.

Riverside County fire officials later said the motorcycle ended up 65 feet over the side of the roadway and that the victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

Eastbound SR-74 was shut down temporarily at the crash site.
