HESPERIA, Calif. (VVNG.com) — Police are searching for a hit-and-run suspect who fled the scene of a fatal motorcycle crash Wednesday.
It happened at about 7:50 pm, just west of the intersection of Main Street and Cottonwood Avenue in Hesperia.
When first responders arrived at the scene, they located a black and silver Harley-Davidson Sportster Iron 883 down in the no.1 westbound lane and the rider several feet away.
Despite life-saving measures, the motorcyclist, an adult male was pronounced deceased at the scene.
Sgt. Hubbard with the Hesperia Sheriff’s Station told Victor Valley News, an unknown type vehicle pulled out from the parking lot in the south-west corner and directly in front of the motorcycle.
