Locals are mourning the loss of Charles James Lovell, following his death in a multi-vehicle crash Monday evening.

Lovell was riding his motorcycle west at the intersection of Main Street and Timberland Avenue in Hesperia when he was struck by a Kia Optima traveling southbound through the intersection. Lovell was thrown from his motorcycle, landing on the driveway of a nearby residence. The Kia then struck a second vehicle, a Toyota Camry.

Both the drivers of the Kia and Toyota were treated for pain on scene. Lovell was transported to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center, and later died in the emergency room.

Police are still investigating what caused the crash.

Being struck by distracted drivers and cars turning without checking intersections are among the leading causes of fatal motorcycle crashes.
