VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) The motorcyclist killed in a Friday night crash has been identified as Cornelius Turner, 45, a resident of Victorville.
Turner or better known as “CT” died after he was thrown from his 2008 Kawasaki motorcycle on Highway 395 north of Palmdale Road at 11:19 p.m., on September 1.
Despite life-saving measures from medical personnel, Turner was pronounced dead at the scene.
Turner’s friends and family say he was a loving father, husband, co-worker, and friend who had a long and successful career working with Caltrans as a Maintenance Supervisor.
