December 18, 2013
California Highway Patrol officials have identified the man who died in a multi-vehicle crash near the San Luis Obispo Regional Airport on Monday evening as Scott Boaz, 53.
Around 5:45 p.m., Charles Davies, 80, made a left turn in front of Boaz’s motorcycle at the intersection of Buckley Road and Esperanza Lane, according to the CHP.
Boaz hit the rear of the truck, throwing him from his bike. Another car driven by Kevin Moore, 44, crashed into the motorcyclist, killing him at the scene.
Moore then crashed his car into a power pole, causing electrical lines to fall on the roadway and knocking out power in surrounding homes.
The CHP is continuing to investigate the accident, but has ruled out alcohol as a cause.
