ANTELOPE VALLEY: BRIEFLY : HUMAN SKELETON FOUND IN DESERT.

LANCASTER - Sheriff's homicide detectives were sent Monday to investigate a human skeleton found in a shallow grave in the desert east of Lancaster.

Two men walking through the desert found the grave, which apparently had been disturbed by coyotes or other animals.

``You could tell it had been there for a long time. It was just bones,'' said Kevin Dunn, 20, of Lancaster, who found the grave with his brother-in-law, Andy Tolman. ``We took a good look at the skull to make sure it wasn't a cow or something. When we saw it really was a person, that's when we called it in.''

They couldn't tell if it was a male or female, he said.

The body was found near 110th Street East and Avenue G, about a mile from the nearest house and two miles from a paved road, but only 200 to 300 yards from a dirt road over terrain easily passable by a four-wheel-drive vehicle, Dunn said.

Motorcyclist killed in crash with truck

ANGELES NATIONAL FOREST - A motorcyclist died when he veered into oncoming traffic on Highway 2 and laid his Kawasaki Ninja down in the path of a pickup truck, a California Highway Patrol spokesman said.

The 23-year-old Apple Valley man, whose name was not released, was traveling too rapidly to negotiate a righthand curve east of Highway 39 and crossed over the double yellow line, CHP Officer Miguel Siordia said.

Truck driver Ricky Williams, 46, of Riverside was not injured, Siordia said. A second motorcyclist, Adam Ford, 19, of Hesperia suffered minor injuries, Siordia said. Ford saw the crash, lost control and laid his motorcycle down in the westbound lane, Siordia said.
