RIVERSIDE – A 37-year-old motorcyclist was killed in a collision at an intersection at Riverside, authorities said Tuesday.
Martha Casillas of Riverside was fatally wounded around 10:30 p.m. Monday at Cochran and La Sierra Avenue, according to the Riverside Police Department.
Officer Emilio Angulo said Casillas was heading south on La Sierra when she “failed to stop at a red light” and entered the intersection as a 2020 Honda Civic approached Cochran, heading east.
“Both vehicles collided,” Angulo said.
The Honda driver, identified only as a 20-year-old resident of Fontana, was not injured, nor were any of his passengers, according to Angulo.
He said the investigation is ongoing and it is still unknown if alcohol or drugs were factors in the accident.
