MEDIA RELEASE ~ Motorcyclist Dies in Fatal Traffic Collision


Irwindale, CA: On Friday, June 11, 2021, at about 5:10 P.M., Irwindale Police Department patrol officers and the Los Angeles County Fire Department responded to the area of Longden Avenue and Live Oak Avenue in the city of Irwindale, regarding the report of an injury, solo-vehicle traffic collision involving a motorcycle.

On arrival, our officers discovered that a white 2017 BMW motorcycle with a single rider was traveling westbound on Live Oak Avenue, transitioning to westbound on Longden Avenue, when the motorcyclist apparently lost control and struck the center median and then a light standard, ejecting the rider. The motorcycle continued moving on its own, eventually striking a parked vehicle.

Paramedics from the Los Angeles County Fire Department arrived and attempted lifesaving measures on the motorcyclist; however, he died at the scene. There were no other parties or vehicles involved in the traffic collision, other than the parked vehicle.

All lanes of Longden Avenue between Live Oak Avenue and Myrtle Avenue were closed for approximately 7 hours during the traffic collision investigation. Officers from the Azusa Police Department’s Traffic Unit assisted the investigation. 

The identity of the deceased rider, an adult male, is not being released at this time, pending notification of his next of kin by the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner’s Office.  

The cause of this traffic collision remains under investigation and it is not yet known if drugs or alcohol were a factor in the collision.

Anyone with information regarding this traffic collision is asked to contact Officer Jaycon Sanchez at (626) 430-2244 or by email at
