Deputies assigned to the Perris Police Station, along with other emergency personnel, were dispatched to the scene just after 7 p.m., Riverside Sheriff’s Sergeant Marshall later explained.

Paramedics rushed the motorcyclist to an area hospital, where the man succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced deceased by hospital staff. Officials have not released the Perris man’s identity, pending notification of his family.

Based on the circumstances, members of the Perris Traffic Reconstruction Team responded to the scene and assumed the investigation.

During their subsequent collision investigation officials determined a 54-year-old, Perris resident, was traveling westbound on W. 4th Street and came to a stop in the center median while preparing to make a left turn into a driveway.

“The motorist attempted to cross the two westbound lanes into a driveway of a business when she was struck by the motorcyclist,” explained Marshall.

The woman was not injured and was not under the influence of alcohol or drugs, according to Marshall.

During their investigation, officials called for the temporary closure of the number two lane of W. 4th St., and the roadway was reopened to traffic several hours later, at 11:45 pm.

Anyone who may have witnessed this collision and has not been interviewed is encouraged to contact Deputy Fraley at the Perris Police Department, (951) 210-1066. Callers can refer to incident file number PE182570095 and can remain anonymous.
