Motorcycle Accident Fatally Injures Ceres Man
A Ceres man passed away in a motorcycle accident near Jamestown on the evening of March 13, 2019. The crash happened shortly before 6:30 p.m. along Highway 120 in the vicinity of O’Byrnes Ferry Road. A man riding a Yamaha motorcycle reportedly entered the oncoming traffic lane to overtake a slower-moving vehicle. While doing so, he was struck by a driver of a Chevrolet Suburban who was also in the process of passing slower traffic. The impact of the collision caused the man to be ejected from the Yamaha, and he landed in the grass and dirt shoulder. The motorist and passenger of the Chevrolet Suburban were uninjured in the crash. Sadly, the biker was pronounced deceased at the scene. Officials have identified the decedent as 45-year-old Joshua Cody Boykin of Ceres. I would like to send my healing thoughts and prayers to the friends and family of Mr. Boykin in their time of loss and sorrow.
