A motorcyclist killed in a collision with a pickup truck in Palmdale was identified Friday.

The crash was reported at 6:04 p.m. Wednesday near Division and Fantasy streets, said Detective Rowell Quemuel of the Palmdale Sheriff’s Station.

Christopher Reycraft, 37, of Palmdale died at the scene, said coroner’s Assistant Chief Ed Winter.

Reycraft was riding a 2002 Kawasaki motorcycle south on Division Street approaching Fantasy Street when he collided with a pickup truck that made a turn in front of him, Quemuel said.

The motorcycle struck the front driver’s side of the truck and the impact caused Reycraft to fly off the bike, Quemuel said.

The 69-year-old driver of the truck remained at the scene and was interviewed by deputies. He was taken to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries, Quemuel added.
