Sponsored by:

Valley Springs, CA — A 24-year-old man riding a motorcycle was killed after being hit by a juvenile driving a Chevy Camaro.

It happened late yesterday afternoon during the four o’clock hour on Double Springs Road west of Highway 26 in Valley Springs. The boy driving the 2012 Camaro is 17-years-old.

The CHP reports that the teen was traveling eastbound and the car drifted into the opposing traffic lane due to the high speed. It collided directly with the oncoming 2021 Kawasaki motorcycle. The rider was ejected from the bike and was later pronounced dead at the scene. The juvenile was taken to Mark Twain Medical Center to treat “minor injuries.” The CHP adds that drugs/alcohol were not a factor in the crash. No names were released by officials related to the crash.
