Motorcyclist dies in River Road crash

A motorcyclist was killed Monday night in a collision on River Road in Forestville, according to the CHP. It was the second fatality on River Road since Friday.

The accident, which was reported at about 7:15 p.m., involved one other vehicle, according to initial reports. It occurred just past Trenton Road, the CHP said.

Dispatch reported the motorcyclist was unconscious when emergency responders arrived at the scene.

CHP closed River Road to traffic in both directions between Mirabel Avenue and Wohler Road while they investigated the crash. By 9 p.m., the road was reopened.

Monday's wreck was the second fatality on that area of River Road in the last three days. A 20-year-old Santa Rosa man died Friday night when the pickup he was driving swerved over the center lane near the Russian River Pub and struck two other cars.
