A motorcyclist died from injuries he sustained in a collision with a vehicle on the night of Monday, Aug. 8.

Winter Police Chief John P. Miller said a 2000 Toyota Avalon was traveling westbound on E. Grant Avenue (Hwy. 128) and was making a left turn to southbound E. Main Street when a 2018 Harley Davidson motorcycle (traveling eastbound E. Grant Avenue) collided with the passenger side of the Toyota Avalon.

Crews from Winters Police Department, Winters Fire Department and AMR personnel responded to the collision at 10:44 p.m.

Miller said the motorcyclist was wearing a helmet but sustained life threatening injuries. The motorcyclist was transported to the Kaiser Vacaville Trauma Center where he succumbed to his injuries.

“Speeding does not appear to be a contributing factor, nor does alcohol/drugs, but toxicology analysis for both the driver and motorcyclist is part of the pending follow up,” Miller said.

According to Miller, an independent witness viewed the collision and was the only other vehicle on the roadway in the vicinity at that time. Winters PD is not seeking additional information, but the collision remains an open investigation as standard follow up is done.

The Solano County Coroner’s Office will provide identification for the victim when available.
