Emergency personnel were first alerted to the accident shortly after 6:30 p.m., when 911 callers reported the rider of a motorcycle had crash into a tree along a curve in the roadway, according to a CHP incident log.

Based on the victim’s injuries, medical personnel at the scene requested an air ambulance to transport the man to an area hospital.

CHP’s H-14 arrived in the area about 15 minutes later and provided air support in the form of overhead photographs of the accident scene, but it was not immediately known if they were available to perform the medical transport.

“The decedent suffered major injuries as a result of the collision and was pronounced deceased at the scene by emergency personnel,” Shasta County Chief Deputy Coroner Lieutenant Randall later reported.

Coroner officials identified the victim as 24-year-old, Leland Robert Foreman II, of Anderson, according to Randall, who said the victim’s family has been notified and a postmortem examination will be scheduled.

The fatal crash remains under investigation by California Highway Patrol.
