According to the San Luis Obispo Tribune, a 53-year-old native of San Luis Obispo died in a motorcycle accident after colliding with an automobile on Monday, December 16. The motorcyclist was driving down Buckley road, approaching Esperanza Lane around 6 p.m. when an 80-year-old man driving a Toyota truck made a left turn up ahead.
The truck’s turn was initiated too quickly for the 53-year-old motorcyclist to engage in an evasive maneuver. Then, the motorcyclist made contact with the back end of the truck and was launched from his motorcycle. Unfortunately, the motorcyclist landed on the pavement in the path of an oncoming 2010 Honda Pilot. After running over the motorcyclist, the Honda driver then swerved so as not to hit the motorcycle and collided with a power line. Three hundred and fifty homes lost electricity for the following four hours.
