The Ford F250 was turning onto Lerdo Highway when the accident occurred.

A Shafter man was killed after his motorcycle and a pickup truck collided on Lerdo Highway Tuesday.

Jonathan Rosales, 21, was pronounced dead at the scene after the crash around 3:20 p.m. According to the Shafter Police Department, Rosales was traveling westbound on his 2002 Honda 954 when it collided with a Ford F250. The Ford was turning left onto Lerdo Highway from Vultee Road.

It is too early in the investigation to say if drugs or alcohol were a factor in the accident, according to Captain Diana Burnett of the Shafter Police Department.
