Two Orange County motorcyclists killed after deadly collision on Highway 74

According to a recent article from Press Enterprise, there was a fatal motorcycle collision that took place on Highway 74 west of Lake Elsinore on Sunday morning, leaving two motorcyclists dead.

Authorities were able to identify the two motorcyclists involved as Gilbert Banuelos, a 24-year-old man from La Habra, and Andre Dang, a 27-year-old Buena Park resident.  They were pronounced dead at the scene of the crash at 10:41 a.m. and 10:52 a.m., respectively.

Sources stated that the crash caused the mountain highway road to be shut down in both directions from Lake Elsinore to San Juan Capistrano until just after 1:00 p.m.

Authorities stated that Banuelos was traveling east on Yamaha sports bike near the Ortega Oaks Candy Store at an unsafe speed as he attempted to turn through a curve in the road. The rider crossed the double-yellow line as a result and collided with Andre Dang, who was heading west on a BMW sports bike, sources said.

Currently, this crash remains under investigation as authorities work to determine the exact cause and liable party in the crash.

Further details will be reported at a later time once the investigation has concluded.
