A motorcyclist died Sunday in Riverside when he struck a tree.
The man was eastbound on Victoria Avenue near John Street about 4:30 p.m. when he lost control of the motorcycle and hit a tree, said Riverside police Officer Ryan Railsback.
He died at the scene. His name was withheld pending notification of next of kin, Railsback said.
No one else was injured in the solo-vehicle crash, which shut down Victoria from John to McAllister streets, he said. It was unclear how long the shutdown would last.
