The California Highway Patrol received a call around 3 p.m. Sunday about the crash on West Pozo Road south of Las Positas Road.

Officers said the fatal crashed occurred when the motorcyclist tried to make a turn that threw him off his bike.

An off-duty paramedic pronounced the man dead before the CHP arrived.



Minor correction to the article — I am betting that the location should refer to Las Pilitas Rd. The nearest Las Positas Rd. I know of is in Goleta.


Caution Motorcyclists!

The turns on West Pozo Rd. have arms!


RIP. Beautiful road to ride…
