The county coroner today identified a dirt-bike rider killed in a single-vehicle accident Friday in Acton.

David Michael Stickles, 56, of Claremont, died of blunt injuries from an accident, a spokesman with the Los Angeles County Department of Coroner said.

At about 3:30 p.m. Friday, Stickles was northbound on Escondido Canyon Road approaching Hubbard Road when his 2006 Suzuki dirt bike left the roadway at Hubbard, California Highway Patrol Officer John Lutz said today.

"As he approached Hubbard, the driver allowed the motorcycle to leave the roadway," Lutz said. "He went onto the soft dirt shoulder and was unable to maintain control of the motorcycle."

The vehicle ended up in the ditch.

Paramedics with the Los Angeles County Fire Department tended to Stickles, but the driver died as a result of his injuries, Lutz said.

Drugs and alcohol are not suspected in the crash.
