Updated: A male motorcyclist in his 30s was killed in a collision with an SUV near Bradshaw and Gore roads Friday evening, Sacramento County Sheriff's Department spokesman Dep. Jason Ramos said.
"A sport utility vehicle with a solo occupant was travelling westbound through the intersection, preparing to turn southbound on Gore Road," Ramos said in a press release. "The vehicle was struck by a motorcycle travelling northbound through the intersection at the same time."
Ramos said the driver of the SUV appeared to have the right of way, and had a green light. The driver of that vehicle was not injured, he said.
A spokesman for the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District said that agency responded to the scene, but declined to comment as the sheriff's department and Rancho Cordova Police were leading the investigation into the incident.
Anyone with information about the accident is asked to call the Rancho Cordova Police Department's Traffic Unit at 916-875-9623.
Update: The Sacramento County Coronor's Office has identified the motorcyclist as 32-year-old Christopher S. Shurrum of Sacramento.
