A motorcycle crashed Saturday afternoon on Soledad Canyon Road, about a half-mile east of Highway 14, leaving one man dead and one woman in critical condition, according to law enforcement officials.

Joel Renteria, 30, of Lancaster, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to a California Highway Patrol news release.

His passenger, Sera Anderson, 21, of Lancaster, was transported to Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital, after sustaining serious to critical injuries in the crash, officials said.
