The Sacramento County Coroner's Office has identified a motorcyclist who died Monday morning in a collision with a school bus as Travis Brian Percival, 33, of Sacramento.
According to the California Highway Patrol, which investigates incidents involving school buses, Percival was riding a 2007 Kawasaki motorcycle westbound on San Juan Road, east of Tumbleweed Way in South Natomas about 6:45 a.m. A school bus belonging to the Twin Rivers Unified School District was stopped on southbound Tumbleweed Way at San Juan Road.
As the bus driver began to make a left turn onto eastbound San Juan, Percival changed lanes, moving from the right lane to the left lane, and collided with the right side of the bus, according to a CHP news release.
Percival died at the scene. CHP officials said he was wearing a helmet at the time of the collision.
Twelve students were aboard the school bus, and none was injured.
The cause of the crash is under investigation.
