Motorcyclist Killed as Police Seek Vehicle
On December 16, 2013 at approximately 6:22 a.m., Robert Neal Ivey, a 53 year old male from Carmichael, was riding a blue 1993 Honda Goldwing motorcycle on westbound I-80 west of West El Camino Avenue in the #1 lane at an unknown speed.
Due to a traffic collision just west of the motorcycle's location traffic slowed abruptly. Ivey applied the motorcycle's brakes due to slower moving traffic at which point he lost control of his motorcycle and struck the roadway. The motorcycle continued in a westerly direction and came to rest blocking the #2 lane of westbound I-80. Ivey was ejected from the motorcycle and came to rest in the #2 lane east of the motorcycle. While lying in the #2 lane Ivey was struck by a passing vehicle which caused fatal injuries.
At this time, the only information we have on the vehicle that struck Ivey is that it is a large profile vehicle. This vehicle could possibly be a tractor trailer or box truck type vehicle with a considerable amount of weight. It is possible that the driver of this vehicle is unaware that they ran over Ivey.
There were no other injuries in this collision and this collision is still under investigation.
If you have any information or witnessed this collision, please contact the California Highway Patrol North Sacramento office.
