Motorcyclist killed in head-on collision
May 9, 2012
Darin Moore, 48, was rounding a corner on his motorcycle when he swerved into the other lane and struck the left front of a Mazda MX-6. Moore then called 911 to report the accident.
An Atascadero High School student was the first on the scene and called a doctor who lives nearby to assist. The neighbor arrived within minutes and began providing care. She used a stiletto to remove the injured man’s clothing and discovered Moore was wearing a bullet-proof vest.
Moore was transported to Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center and then air lifted to Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara where he later died from his injuries.
The driver of the Mazda was not injured.
