Authorities determined the tractor-trailer was making a right turn into a business in the area near Plant shopping center prior to the collision. As per the article, because of the length of the truck, the driver was making the turn from the No. 2 lane. Officials said other northbound vehicles had stopped for the truck, but the motorcyclist drove through the traffic and slammed into the side of the trailer.

The rider, identified only as a 20-year-old West Covina man, suffered serious trauma following the impact. The man was apparently rushed to a hospital where he sadly died.

Meanwhile, the tractor operator involved stayed at the scene and cooperated with the authorities.

Further investigation on the case is ongoing.

A forensic examination of the tractor-trailer and motorcycle involved, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will be made to help investigators determine the liability in the accident. Other potential factors will be looked into as well including whether or not a driver was under the influence at the time of the accident, whether or not a motorist was distracted, operating the vehicle recklessly, or traveling over the speed limit prior to impact. Each of these factors plus several others will be assessed allowing police officials to draw up a final conclusion.
