The identity of the Elk Grove man killed in Saturday’s motorcycle accident has been released by the Sacramento County Coroner as 36 year old Dale Funkhouser.



Funkhouser was traveling southbound on Laguna Park Drive, south of Laguna Blvd when he was struck by a car turning left into the Taco Bell parking lot. He was transported to the hospital where he later died of his injuries. The accident is still under investigation by the Elk Grove Police Department. 


According to a post on Facebook by family members, Funkhouser is survived by his wife and 3 children. A Gofundme account has been set up to help the family. A candlelight vigil will be held tonight at 7 pm near the accident scene at the intersection of Laguna Park and Laguna Blvd to remember Dale and remind drivers to be aware of motorcycles. The community is invited to attend and support the family.
