Motorcyclist dies after crashing into motorhome

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A motorcyclist was killed Sunday in a collision with a motorhome on Highway 74 in Anza, which sparked a brush fire and snarled traffic on the narrow highway between the Coachella Valley and San Diego.

Flames engulfed the motorhome, and spread to nearby brush, after the crash on Highway 74 east of the Highway 371 junction. The motorcycle rider died at the scene of the crash, which was reported at 12:45 p.m., Riverside County Fire Department Melody Hendrickson said.

The fatal crash and subsequent fire left Highway 74 with one lane open to handle both directions, the California Highway Patrol reported.

Fire crews are expected to remain at the scene for up to two hours, Hendrickson said.
