According to the Huntington Beach Police Department's press release, Lucker lost control of his black 2013 Harley Davidson and collided into a light pole at 8:55 p.m., which ejected him from his motorcycle.

The rocker sustained severe injuries and was treated on scene by Huntington Beach Fire Department paramedics, who transported him to the UCI Medical Center, where he later died.
