Motorcyclist Killed in Traffic Collision NR12598vhOn December 26, 2012, at around 3:35p.m., a two party traffic collision occurred at the intersection of Yolanda Ave & Ingomar Street in West Valley Area.
Eddie Moore Jr, 38-years-of-age, was riding a 2007 Yamaha R1 northbound on Yolanda Ave at a very high rate of speed. A 1999 Toyota Camry, traveling southbound on Yolanda Ave, was in the process of negotiating a left turn when Moore struck the right rear portion of the Camry and was ejected, landing about 60 feet north of the intersection. The motorcycle continued skidding on its side, out of control, for a distance of over one block before coming to a complete stop. Moore was transported to a local hospital by a rescue ambulance where he later died due to internal injuries.
Moore did have a valid motorcycle M1 endorsement and was wearing a helmet. The driver of the Toyota Camry was not injured and had a valid Cal Op.
