MADERA (May 25, 2018) – A motorcyclist killed after an alleged pot-related DUI crash at Pine and Oak streets has been identified as Dustin Calley, according to The Fresno Bee and ABC 30.

The 25-year-old Chowchilla man was a victim of a tragic collision which occurred Thursday at around 8 a.m.

As per the reports, police said Calley was riding his Kawasaki motorcycle at the intersection of Pine and Oak streets when he was struck by a truck.

Suspect Cary Chaffin, 67, Arrested

The operator of the truck, 67-year-old Cary Chaffin, was making a left turn when he allegedly failed to yield to Calley and hit the victim.

Police affirmed that Calley was immediately taken to Madera Community Hospital where he was later pronounced dead. He was an Army veteran.

Meanwhile, Chaffin was believed to have been driving high on marijuana at the time of the accident. The suspect was arrested and charged with vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence.

It is evident that Mr. Cary Chaffin will be held fully responsible for causing the incident that led to the death of the innocent motorcyclist involved. The motorist is believed to have been driving under the influence of marijuana when the collision occurred. DUI is considered a serious crime throughout the state, especially if the incident tragically killed another individual.

Aside from pot-related DUI, the suspect is also accused of failing to yield to the right-of-way motorist. The surviving family members of Mr. Dustin Calley will then have the right to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against the suspect.
