A man on a motorcycle died Saturday afternoon after crashing into another vehicle in Fresno County, the California Highway Patrol said.

The collision happened at 1:12 p.m. at East McKinley and North Temperance avenues.

CHP spokesman Mike Salas said the motorcycle was moving at a high rate of speed east on McKinley Avenue when a Toyota Sienna attempted a U-turn from eastbound McKinley to westbound. The motorcycle rider braked to avoid the Sienna but the vehicles collided.
