WINCHESTER: Biker in fatal crash going 100 mph, police say (UPDATE)

WINCHESTER: Biker in fatal crash going 100 mph, police say (UPDATE)


A Hemet man riding a motorcycle more than 100 mph in Winchester crashed into a pickup Sunday, May 31, resulting in his death and the death of an 18-year-old Mountain View High School student.

The pickup, driven by 20-year-old Denysse Oliveros, came out of a private driveway on Simpson Road east of Patterson Avenue about 3:44 p.m. Sunday, according to a CHP news release. Oliveros had five passengers with her in the 2003 Chevrolet full-size: Kevin Terrones, 17, Fabiola Duarte, 21, Augustin Rivas, 20, Glenn Lopez, 16, and Daniel Lopez Jr., who died after the collision.

As Oliveros pulled out, 29-year-old Michael Vargas was riding his 2012 Suzuki GSXR east on Simpson Road towards the driveway.

“Multiple witnesses reported the motorcycle rider’s speed in excess of 100 mph,” CHP officials said in the news release.

The news release said Oliveros saw Vargas approaching on the left and thought she had enough time to pull out of the driveway.

But when she drove onto Simpson Road, Vargas’ motorcycle ran into the left rear door of the pickup.

Vargas and the motorcycle were pinned to the pickup, which rolled over.

When paramedics arrived, Vargas was pronounced dead at the scene. Lopez, who was sitting in the left rear seat of the pickup, was transported to Inland Valley Medical Center where he died hours later.

The other passengers in the pickup were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries, the CHP news release said.

Though investigators haven’t determined what caused the collision, the news release said, “Alcohol and/or drugs have not been ruled out as a contributing factor.”
