A 29-year-old woman identified as Claudia Lucrey died after a Toyota Highlander crashed into her motorcycle on March 12 on 215 Freeway.
According to the initial reports from the Riverside County Coroner’s Office, the woman was riding her motorcycle on the 215 Freeway when all of a sudden, a Toyota Highlander crashed into her near March Iar Reserve base.
The impact was so strong that the woman was reportedly ejected from her motorcycle. This caused her to land on the roadway. The driver of the Toyota reported the incident to the authorities at around 9:30 p.m.
Paramedics later arrived at the scene and attempted to treat the woman. Unfortunately, the woman was pronounced dead at the scene at around 9:40 p.m.
Authorities closed down northbound 215 Freeway at 9:45 p.m. but later reopened the lanes at 11:10 p.m.
Authorities are currently trying to determine the cause of the fatal crash.
