On August 14, 2022, at approximately 1825 hours, the driver of a white SUV was attempting to merge onto the US-101 southbound on ramp from Talmage Rd. At the same time the driver of a blue Harley Davidson motorcycle was on US-101 southbound to Talmage Rd. The driver of the White SUV turned from Talmage Rd and drove the wrong way onto US-101 southbound to Talmage Rd. The motorcycle was struck by the SUV traveling the wrong way. As a result of the collision the driver of the motorcycle sustained fatal injuries, and the driver of the SUV was unharmed. The driver of the SUV remained on the scene and cooperated with authorities.

Alcohol and drugs do not appear to be a factor in this collision.

This incident is an active investigation.

    • There were comments from the original post that were uncalled for speculation. That’s the problem with social media, everyone has an opinion whether it’s right or wrong, no matter whom it might hurt. My prayers to all affected, and may this man rest in peace.
