A motorcyclist died Wednesday evening (February 1, 2017,) after colliding with a pickup truck that was trying to make a left turn.

PLACENTIA – A motorcyclist died Wednesday evening (February 1, 2017,) after colliding with a pickup truck that was trying to make a left turn, police said. Around 5:40 p.m., the man, whose name will not be released until his family has been notified, was riding his motorcycle east on Chapman Avenue just past Placentia Avenue, when he collided with a truck trying to turn left onto Murray Street, said Sgt. Bryce Angel of the Placentia Police Department.
The man was pronounced dead at the scene, Angel said. Police were still trying to determine his age late Wednesday. The truck driver, a 57-year-old Placentia man, has minor injuries.
The light at Chapman and Murray is not dedicated, Angel said, meaning that there is no left turn arrow and cars wanting to turn must wait until opposing traffic is clear.
Lanes in both directions on Chapman were closed as of 9:50 p.m.  There is no indication that alcohol was a factor in the crash, police said.
Police ask that anyone with information on the crash to call 714-993-8157.
