A 35 year-old motorcyclist died after unsuccessfully attempting to avoid a collision with a pickup truck in the unincorporated Florence-Firestone area near South Los Angeles.
The collision occurred at 6:55 p.m. Friday, at the intersection of Firestone Boulevard and Maie Avenue, a California Highway Patrol incident report said.
The report said the pickup truck turned left from Firestone in front of the oncoming motorcyclist, who braked and laid his 2006 Yamaha down to avoid the collision, but struck the vehicle himself.
The victim’s identity is being withheld pending notification of next-of- kin, the Los Angeles County Coroner said.
