Motorcyclist Killed in Multi-Car Crash in Cerritos

Cerritos, CA (August 7, 2019)- California Highway Patrol has released the identity of a motorcyclist that was killed in a multiple-vehicle chain reaction that occurred in Cerritos early Wednesday morning, August 7th. CHP officers responded to reports of a multiple-vehicle crash sometime after 12:00 A.M. According to investigators, 21-year old Luis Rivera Hernandez lost control of his Toyota Sienna and collided into a concrete median divider on the eastbound State Route 91 just west of Pioneer Boulevard. Hernandez left the Toyota Sienna unoccupied blocking the carpool lane when it was rear-ended by a Ford Exposition.

Just following the initial collision, 29-year old Raymond Ruvalcaba of Torrance crashed his motorcycle into the back of the Toyota Sienna and was ejected from the motorcycle. His body landed 20 feet from the crash site. First responders arrived and pronounced Ruvalcaba dead at the scene. Hernandez suffered minor injuries and was treated at the scene. The Ford Explorer driver did not suffer any injuries. The eastbound lanes of SR-91 were closed for more than three hours while investigators worked. It’s unclear what caused Hernandez to lose control of the Toyota Sienna but officers say they do not suspect drugs or alcohol to have played a factor as both drivers remained at the scene and were cooperative with authorities. Anyone with information was asked to contact Officer J. Van Dragt at the CHP Santa Fe Springs area office at 562-868-0503
