A man who was injured when his motorcycle collided with a big-rig in Vacaville last week died at a Sacramento hospital on Sunday afternoon, a police sergeant said today.
Frank Gonsalves, 36, of Vacaville, died at 12:30 p.m. at Kaiser Permanente South Sacramento Medical Center, Vacaville police Sgt. Mark Donaldson said.
Gonsalves' motorcycle collided with a big-rig around 12:30 p.m. Thursday on Nut Tree Road at Fairview Drive, police said.
The big-rig, driven by Rickie Williams, 58, of Sacramento, was traveling north on Nut Tree Road approaching the Raley's supermarket driveway, police said.
Gonsalves was riding south on Nut Tree Road approaching the Raley's store and was attempting to turn left into the driveway when the bike and the big-rig collided, police said.
Gonsalves suffered severe head trauma and was in critical condition when he was taken to the hospital, police said.
Investigators do not believe alcohol or drugs played a role in the accident, police said.
