According to the California Highway Patrol,Angel was riding an off-road-style motorcycle north on Parrotts Ferry. He came to a curve in the road just before the Parrotts Ferry Bridge, crossing the Stanislaus River, and crossed the double-yellow lines. He traveled into the southbound lane's shoulder, collided with a guardrail and was thrown from the motorcycle, the CHP said.

He was transported to the hospital by ambulance.
