On Thursday, June 18, 2020, deputies from the Norco Station responded to a report of traffic collision at Hamner avenue, cross of 3rd Street, in the city of Norco.
Upon arrival, deputies located a vehicle collision involving two vehicles and a motorcycle. During the collision the motorcyclist was ejected from his motorcycle. The motorcyclist was transported to a local hospital with major injuries.
The preliminary investigation revealed the motorcyclist was traveling northbound on Hamner Avenue, approaching 3rd street and collided into the rear of a small pick-up truck. The collision caused the pick-up to travel into the southbound lanes colliding with another vehicle. The driver of the pick-up truck and the other vehicle remained on scene. Both drivers cooperated with the investigation. At this time, it is unknown if drugs or alcohol were a factor in this collision.
The Jurupa Valley Traffic Reconstruction Team responded to the location and assumed the investigation. Hamner Avenue was closed for several hours in both directions while deputies processed the scene.
