A Patterson man died Monday after his motorcycle collided with the Highway 152 median rail, the California Highway Patrol reported.
Jerry Trent Finuf, 48, was pronounced dead at the scene of the single-vehicle collision, according to a CHP news release.
Around 1:50 p.m., Finuf was traveling east on Highway 152, east of the Romero Visitor Center, on his red 2001 Harley Davidson.
Finuf lost control of the motorcycle and veered to the left, onto a center median. The front of the motorcycle struck a metal guard rail, according to the release.
Finuf was thrown from the bike and suffered fatal injuries. He was pronounced dead by emergency medical personnel responding to the scene.
CHP Officer Dean Emehiser said Finuf was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident, and neither alcohol nor drugs appears to be a contributing factor to the collision.
