Friday crash victim identified

NICE – Authorities have released the identity of a man killed in a Friday motorcycle crash.


Justin Scott Vibbert, 28, of Nice was killed when his motorcycle went off Highway 20 and landed in some rocks down an embankment near Kono Tayee, according to California Highway Patrol Officer Adam Garcia.


CHP received a call reporting the crash at about 8:30 a.m., Garcia reported.


As Lake County News previously reported, CHP's investigation has so far shown that Vibbert, who was riding at a high rate of speed westbound along Highway 20, lost control while going through a curve.


Vibbert, a glass artist originally from the Midwest, had contact with the CHP over the July 4 weekend. Sheriff's logs show that he had been arrested on two felony drug possession charges and was booked into the Lake County Jail on July 5.


Garcia said the collision investigation, led by CHP Officer Brian Engle, is continuing.
