A Rancho Cordova man dies in a motorcycle vs construction equipment accident in Citrus Heights.
Just before 3 a.m. Friday morning, CHP and Sacramento Metro Fire Department responded to a motorcycle accident on Sunrise Blvd just before Sunset Ave in Citrus Heights. Per CHP, a Sacramento County construction crew was doing sewage work and witnessed a Rancho Cordova man, possibly traveling at a high rate of speed on a full dressed Yamaha, hit a cone in the construction zone. He lost control sliding under a utility trailer. The motorcycle continued moving down the road and slammed into another truck in the construction zone. The man suffered fatal injuries, and it is unknown, at this point, if alcohol was involved. The man was wearing a helmet and CHP is investigating to see if it was an approved helmet. Sunset remained open during the investigation with one lane closed. CHP expected to have the incident cleared before rush hour traffic began.
