Shortly after 9 p.m., the motorcyclist was traveling westbound on Los Osos Valley Road and approaching near Broderson Avenue. As the driver of a Ford Ranger was preparing to turn left onto LOVR, the speeding motorcyclist hit the truck’s right side, according to the CHP.
The collision caused the Ford Ranger to flip on its side. The motorcyclist was thrown from his Harley Davidson and reportedly died upon impact.
A 30-year-old man who was driving the pickup suffered cuts to his forearm. However, the passenger in the pickup, a 28-year-old Arroyo Grande woman, suffered multiple fractures to her pelvis and underwent treatment at a local hospital.
Officers determined the driver of the pickup was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Officials have yet to disclose the identity of the victim or the other people involved in the crash.
An investigation into the crash is ongoing. Anyone who has information about the collision is encouraged to call the San Luis Obispo CHP office at (805) 594-8700.
