VICTORVILLE, CALIF. (VVNG.com) — The San Bernardino County Coroner’s office has identified the man killed in a motorcycle crash earlier this month as 33-year-old Jonathan Pinal, a resident of Victorville.
On Saturday, May 4, 2019, at about 7:30 pm, deputies from the Victorville Station, and rescue personnel from the San Bernardino County Fire Department and American Medical Response responded to a vehicle versus motorcycle traffic collision near the intersection of Nisqualli Road and Seventh Avenue in the City of Victorville.
“Upon arrival, Deputies determined that a blue Honda motorcycle was driving west on Nisqualli Road and a gold Chevrolet SUV was driving south on Seventh Avenue. The vehicles collided near the intersection,” the Victorville Police Department said.
Pinal was later pronounced deceased at Desert Valley Hospital. The other involved vehicle remained at the scene.
Friends said Pinal was on his way home when the crash happened.
“On May 04, 2019 after his shift from work, Jonathan never made it home to his family,” stated Kenny Tran on the GoFundMe page for Pinal.
“He leaves behind a beautiful hard working wife (cancer survivor) and a son whom he loves dearly whose also name is Jonathan. Jonathan was a truck driver and trainer for Schneider National. Jonathan was a great trainer and as a trainer his goal was to make sure drivers were safe and got home to their family everyday,” wrote Tran.
Deputies are investigating the cause of the collision. The intersection of Nisqualli Road and Seventh Avenue was closed for several hours for the investigation.
