A motorcyclist was killed Wednesday night after crashing into the back of a car turning into a south Sacramento shopping center.
He was identified by the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office as 29-year-old Cody Wagner.
At 9:41 p.m., Wagner’s motorcycle slammed the back of a 2017 Hyundai as the car slowed to 10 mph ahead of a left turn from Power Inn Road onto Gerber Road, according to a California Highway Patrol news release.
The motorcyclist shot out from his bike to the right, where a 2010 Freightliner pulling multiple trailers had just accelerated to 10 mph after being stopped at a red light. He was run over by the first and second trailer, and was dead by the time first responders arrived at the scene 10 minutes later.

Wagner’s city of residence was not listed on the Coroner’s Office website.
Neither the Hyundai driver nor the big-rig driver was injured, according to the CHP.
