A 57-year-old Modesto man riding a motorcycle was killed in a crash Wednesday night on Chrisman Road near Highway 132.

The California Highway Patrol reported that a Tracy man pulled out of a Chrisman Road gas station parking lot at about 9 p.m. and failed to see three Harley Davidsons barreling down the road.

Two of the three motorcycles hit their brakes but couldn’t stop in time.

The Modesto rider was killed, and his 55-year-old passenger, a woman also from Modesto, was seriously injured. A 49-year-old man from Salida on a motorcycle also sustained major injuries. The third motorcycle rider managed to avoid the crash and was uninjured.

The 44-year-old Tracy driver suffered only minor injuries, according to the CHP, which did not identify anyone involved in the crash by name.
