SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A motorcyclist was killed in a crash with two other vehicles in south Sacramento Wednesday night.

The crash happened a little after 9:30 p.m. on Power Inn Road, just south of Gerber Road.

Investigators say the motorcyclist rear-ended a car about to turn left.

The impact threw the rider off the bike and he became trapped underneath a big rig.

The motorcyclist died at the scene. His identity has not been released.

  1. So this is what all the commotion was about Wednesday night? I saw several Sheriff vehicles and a fire truck on Power Inn (near the Starbucks @ the Save Mart shopping center). I was curious to know what happened. I was riding my motorcycle and planned on turning right on Power Inn off of Gerber when I noticed the flares and Sheriff vehicles. Never thought that it might’ve been a fellow cyclist. I imagine the car was turning left trying to go into the Foods Co. parking lot, not turn left at the light near AM/PM because all the flares were way over near Starbucks and that lane was closed off. The left turn into the Foods Co. parking lot is about 150 feet from the intersection and it’s a short exit. Poor guy 😦
