Summit High School graduate Dustin Polson was killed July 21 when his motorcycle drifted into oncoming traffic on a California road, according to a report from the Bakersfield Californian.

Polson, 37, died approximately at Kern Medical Center 90 minutes after the crash, reported at 6:07 p.m. on Cerro Noroeste Road, the report said, citing a press release from the Kern County Coroner.

Polson was reportedly traveling east on Cerro Noroeste Road on a 2003 BMW 1150 GS as a group of motorcyclists was heading west, when he moved over the double-yellow line and collided with Robert Cherry, 39, who was riding a 2004 KTM 625 SXC motorcycle.

Although Cherry braked, the two motorcycles crashed and both riders were thrown off their bikes.

Cherry sustained minor injuries, according to the Californian’s story.

Polson, a 1993 Summit High grad, was reportedly living in Boise, Idaho.
