The CHP has identified the victim as Molly Bear. The driver of the motorcycle, 47-year-old Pismo Beach resident Donald McKee III, suffered major injuries but survived.
The crash occurred on Highway 227 just south of Biddle Ranch Road. A Ford Ranger made a U-turn into the southbound shoulder, and the driver then backed into the southbound lane.
McKee’s Harley Davidson crashed into the pickup. The driver of the Ford Ranger did not see the motorcycle coming, according to the CHP.
Bear suffered major injuries in the crash and was transported to a local hospital. Doctors later declared her dead.
McKee was also ejected from the motorcycle. Responders transported him to the hospital with McKee.
The driver of the pickup did not suffer any injuries.
A CHP investigation into the crash is ongoing.
