MORONGO VALLEY — A Morongo Valley motorcyclist was killed on Tuesday evening.

The accident occurred near the Riverside County line on Highway 62.

The rider, 30-year-old Gary Thomas Berlino II, was pronounced dead on-scene.

Mr. Berlino was riding his 2003 Kawasaki at about 5 p.m. when reports say he veered off the road and struck the mountainside.

No further details were provided.

This is yet another example of a young man losing his life unnecessarily in a tragic solo motorcycle accident. As riders we must take care to look after ourselves, even when we're riding the same roads that take us to work day after day. Surprises happen and we are all susceptible to the errors of ourselves or the others around us. The San Bernardino motorcycle accident lawyers here at RiderzLaw offer our deepest condolences to the family and friends who are affected by the loss of this rider, and beg our readers to please be safe on the motorways.
