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.

    Hmmm…Seems rather like the writer of this article has already decided the motorcyclist was at fault. Using exactly the same information, let me rephrase it. (Note: a vehicle already on the road has the right of way over a vehicle entering the road.) “A pickup truck turning left onto Los Osos Valley Road turned into the path of an allegedly speeding motorcyclist, causing the motorcycle to strike the right side of the pickup truck. The motorcyclist was thrown from his bike and killed, and the passenger in the truck suffered major injuries”

    “Preparing to turn?” Really? Preparing by turning into the roadway? What? How could the bike hit the truck if the truck was not in the roadway? I wonder who said the motorcyclist was speeding?
