A motorcyclist was killed when he lost control and plowed into a light pole at a Riverside intersection, authorities said Wednesday.

The fatality occurred about 11:30 p.m. Tuesday at Kane Street and Olivewood Avenue, according to the Riverside Police Department.

Sgt. James Elliott said the rider, whose identity was not immediately released, was making a southbound turn onto Olivewood from Kane when he “lost control … and collided with a concrete light pole in an adjacent parking lot.”

No other vehicles were involved.

The gravely injured victim was taken to Riverside Community Hospital, where he died a short time later, Elliott said.

The crash remains under investigation, and anyone with information was asked to contact the police Traffic Bureau at 951-826-8723.
