A motorcyclist was killed in Caruthers on Saturday night after a car failed to yield at a stop sign, according to California Highway Patrol Sgt. Matt Zulim.
The rider was identified Monday by the Fresno County Coroner as Miguel Jimenez Flores, 50.
The accident happened around 8 p.m. when the driver of a 1993 Nissan was driving north on Marks Avenue. The driver
stopped briefly at the stop sign at the intersection of Marks and Henderson avenues, Zulim said, but failed to see Flores driving a 2010 Kawasaki motorcylce west on Henderson Avenue.
The motorcycle hit the Nissan, and Flores was ejected, Zulim said. He died from his injuries.
The Nissan driver sustained minor injuries but was not taken to the hospital.
Drugs or alcohol do not appear to be factors in the crash, Zulim said.
