A motorcyclist who may have been weaving in and out of traffic at a high rate of speed was killed after crashing Thursday afternoon.
The unidentified motorcyclist had been traveling on Hwy 79 in the area of Lambs Canyon Road, north of Gilman Springs Road, near Beaumont at the time, according to California Highway Patrol logs.
The crash was reported just before 2 p.m. Witnesses told California Highway Patrol officials that the motorcyclist was moving in between cars at roughly 100 miles per hour before crashing, according to online records.
Officials on scene told Patch that when the motorcyclist crashed, he landed several feet away from his bike, hitting his head on a boulder in the dirt shoulder.
No other vehicles were involved. Riverside Cal Fire officials responded, but the rider had died at the scene, fire officials said.
