A motorcyclist was killed Sunday afternoon when he collided with an SUV after running a red light in north Fresno, police reported.
Capt. Mike Reid said the collision took place about 1:30 p.m. at Blackstone and Minarets avenues. Reid said riders of two sport bikes were northbound on Blackstone as they approached Minarets. One of them stopped for a red light at Minarets, but the second rode into the intersection and crashed into the back of a 2016 Ford Explorer.
The department’s Collision Reconstruction Unit is investigating the crash, and it is not known whether alcohol or drugs played a role in the incident.
