Around 5:45 p.m. Monday, a pick-up truck made a left turn in front of an oncoming motorcycle at the intersection of Buckley Road and Esperanza Lane, according to the CHP.
The motorcyclist hit the rear of the truck, throwing him from his bike. Another car then crashed into the motorcyclist, killing him at the scene.
The accident concluded with the car crashing into a power pole, causing electrical lines to fall on the roadway and knocking out power in surrounding homes.
The CHP is continuing to investigate the accident, but has ruled out alcohol as a cause.
