PALMDALE — A motorcyclist was killed Thursday in a crash with another vehicle in the Littlerock area.

The 26-year-old Palmdale man was fatally injured about 5:50 a.m. on eastbound Pearblossom Highway just east of 80th Street East, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Authorities withheld his name, pending notification of his next of kin.

The motorcyclist was traveling at “a high rate of speed” and rear-ended a slower-moving vehicle, whose driver was not injured, the CHP reported.

“Alcohol and/or drugs are not suspected to be a factor in this collision,” according to a CHP statement.

Anyone with information on the crash is urged to call the CHP at 661-948-8541.
