MORENO VALLEY (CNS) – A 22-year-old motorcyclist was fatally injured today in a collision at a Moreno Valley intersection.

Justin Dimaculangan of Riverside died shortly before 7 a.m. at Delphinium Avenue and Heacock Street.

According to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, the victim was headed southbound on Heacock when he encountered a truck going in the same direction, preparing to make a left turn onto Delphinium.

Sheriff’s Sgt. Brian De Marco said that as the trucker initiated his turn, the motorcyclist collided with him and was ejected onto the roadway.

Paramedics arrived within a few minutes and attempted life-saving treatment, but Dimaculangan was pronounced dead at the scene.

The trucker, who stopped immediately after the crash, was not hurt.

De Marco said alcohol or drugs do not appear to be factors in the deadly wreck, which remains under investigation.
