Fatal Traffic Collision in Canyon Country
Friday, May 29, 2009 — 3:45 p.m. — Canyon Country:
    A fatal traffic collision occurred this afternoon on Sand Canyon Road south of the 14 Freeway. Deputies from the Santa Clarita Sheriff's Station and the Los Angeles County Fire Department responded to the location and reports of a vehicle collision involving two vehicles. One of the vehicles was a motorcycle being driven by a male white adult. The male was transported to Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead. The driver of the other vehicle suffered major injuries and was also transported to the hospital. She is currently listed in stable condition.
    The Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff Station's Traffic Office is continuing their investigation. Anyone who may have witnessed this incident, and has not yet talked to deputies, should contact the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station at (661) 255-1121. The names of those involved in the collision have not yet been released. There is no further information at this time.
    Did you know that last year, there were 50 traffic collisions involving motorcycles in our City with 10% resulting in a fatality? Thatís a 39% increase over the previous year and way too many! Itís a fact that motorcyclists are 26 times more likely to die in a traffic collision than someone riding in a car.
    In an effort to reduce the number motorcycle-related accidents and fatalities, the City of Santa Clarita — Mayor Frank Ferry and the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station launched a motorcycle safety campaign several months ago. For motorcycle related facts, training classes, safety information, and even a safety video featuring your Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Motorcycle Deputies, visit the following link: Motorcycle Safety Program.
