VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) — The San Bernardino County Coroner’s Office identified the motorcyclist killed in a crash on Highway 395 in Victorville as Jacob Echegoyen.

On Friday, June 19, 2020, at approximately 5:29 pm, deputies and rescue personnel responded to a traffic collision on Highway 395 north of Bear Valley Road and south of La Mesa Road.

Upon arrival, motorcycle driver, 25-year-old Jacob Echegoyen of Victorville, was pronounced dead at the scene at 5:40 PM.

Through investigation, it was determined a white Ford pickup truck towing a trailer and a white Honda motorcycle were traveling northbound on Highway 395. Sheriff’s officials said traffic was stopped due to an unrelated traffic collision further up the roadway.
