Motorcyclist Suffers Fatal Injuries After Striking Concrete Median

A motorcyclist died on Hilltop Drive Friday night. Redding Police and medical responders were called at 9:47PM to the 40 block of Hilltop drive near the north end. The rider was still in the roadway and was unresponsive. Despite life saving efforts, he could not be revived. Hilltop Drive was closed for about 3 hours while the RPD Traffic Unit investigated. Apparently the motorcyclist was going southbound and hit a raised concrete median. The impact ejected the rider and sent him airborne. Video surveillance from a nearby business helped in the investigation. Witnesses are asked to contact Redding Police.
