Vacaville police: Motorcyclist dies in crash

By From page A1 | May 26, 2014

VACAVILLE — A motorcyclist in his 20s died as a result of a traffic accident on East Monte Vista Avenue, Sunday.

Police received a call about 3 p.m. referencing a vehicle collision with a downed motorcyclist, Vacaville Police Lt. Mark Donaldson said.

Police responded to the scene at County Airport Road where an off-duty nurse was performing CPR on the victim. Vacaville fire paramedics attempted life-saving measures but the man was pronounced dead at the scene. Donaldson said the victim was a Vacaville resident in his mid-20s.

Paramedics transported an elderly driver to VacaValley Hospital for injuries as a result of air bag deployment, Donaldson said.

The driver of a small-sized SUV was traveling southbound on Monte Vista Avenue before the collision with the motorcyclist, who was traveling northbound with two other motorcyclists, Donaldson said.

“It’s really early on in the investigation to determine who’s at fault or what the cause of the collision is,” Donaldson said.

He said it was unknown if speed, alcohol or drugs played a role in the accident.

A portion of Monte Vista Avenue was closed to traffic while police officers investigated the scene.

Police will not release the name of the victim pending the official notification of next of kin.
