Motorcyclist Killed in Head-on Crash in Redlands

REDLANDS, CA (August 30, 2018) – A head-on crash in Redlands killed a motorcyclist on Sunday. Police say the collision occurred with a car that was speeding and had crossed over the double-yellow lines of the road on Live Oak Canyon Road.

The time was roughly 6:45 a.m.

According to reports, the motorcyclist had been riding eastbound on Live Oak Canyon Road in the 29000 block prior to the accident. The car—described as a Ford Mustang—was going west at a high rate of speed, according to Carl Baker, a spokesman for the Redlands Police.

The car moved off the road, attempted to correct, and crossed over the doub-yellow lines into the lane of oncoming traffic. The car then collided with the motorcycle.

The driver of the car, identified as Miguel Ochoa Torres, an 18-year-old resident of Fontana, ran away from the accident scene. With the assistance of a helicopter crew from the San Bernardino County sheriff’s office, officers found the driver in a ravine, hiding from authorities.

The motorcyclist died at the scene of the accident. He was identified as Herbert Long, a 74-year-old resident of Riverside.

Responders took the driver to a hospital for treatment of injuries. Ochoa Torres will likely be arrested on suspicion of felony hit-and-run, felony driving under the influence, and gross vehicular manslaughter.

A person who had been traveling in the car with Ochoa Torres, identified as a 26 year old, received treatment at a hospital and was then released.
