A Bakersfield man died Saturday night after losing control of his motorcycle on northbound Manor Street.
A California Highway Patrol news release said David Breckenridge Stone, age 62, was riding at about 50 mph just south of China Grade Loop when he made an unsafe turning movement and allowed his 2005 Honda to drift to the left off the roadway at 6:30 p.m.
Stone lost control and the motorcycle overturned, the release states. It says he was ejected from the motorcycle where it hit the roadway.
Stone was transported to Kern Medical Center and pronounced dead at 9:05 p.m.
