A dirt-bike rider was killed in a head-on collision east of Twentynine Palms last night. According to County Fire Battalion Chief Scott Tuttle, a full-size pick-up truck was traveling eastbound on Amboy Road about 6:15 when the driver went to pass a slower-moving vehicle, just east of Chadwick Road. As the truck passed the vehicle, it crashed head-on into a dirt bike traveling westbound on the highway. The male rider—who was not wearing a helmet—was pronounced deceased at the scene. The county coroner has not released his name yet, as the rider did not have any identification on him, but he is estimated to be in his late 30s.
