July 11th ─ a motorcyclist is dead after trying to evade police early Tuesday morning. According to authorities the incident began when a San Bernardino County Sheriff’s deputy attempted to initiate a stop with a GSXR1000 motorcycle around 12:45 a.m. near Milliken Avenue and 7th Street in Rancho Cucamonga, after noticing the bike did not have a license plate. The motorcyclist then fled the area reaching speed of up to 100 mph according to deputies. Deputies chased it for about a mile and a half, until it reached 4th Street in Ontario when the chase was called off by the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department due to excessive and unsafe speeds. The motorcycle continued another half-mile south until it broadsided a 1991 Toyota Corolla that was turning to enter the 10 freeway, according to Ontario Police. The driver of the Corolla was not injured but the motorcyclist was ejected from the bike and pronounced dead at the scene by responding Ontario Police officers. Excessive speed and alcohol have not been ruled out as factors in the crash and the identity of the motorcyclist has not been released until his family is notified.

Authorities are urging anyone with information about the incident to contact sheriff’s investigators in Rancho Cucamonga at 909-477-2800, Ontario police at 909-986-6711 or Ontario Cpl. Fred Ruiz at 909-395-2001, ext. 4687.
