Santa Cruz, CA…Early this morning, Tanner Guillory, 31 from Santa Cruz was riding his 2005 Suzuki GSX-R600 motorcycle traveling eastbound on East Cliff Drive east of Prospect Street. The rider was traveling at a high rate of speed when he failed to maintain control of his motorcycle and crossed into the opposing lane and struck a garbage truck traveling westbound. The rider of the motorcycle sustained fatal injuries as a result of his collision.
The driver of the garbage truck was uninjured. Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by this mornings accident.
