Arroyo Grande man identified as victim of Christmas Eve crash
December 29, 2015
The California Highway Patrol has identified the man killed in a Christmas Eve crash in San Luis Obispo as Arroyo Grande resident Connor Wiens, 29.
Wiens was involved in several collisions on southbound Highway 101 near Los Osos Valley Road. Following the second crash, Wiens was ejected onto the highway, and multiple vehicles struck his body.
Around 9:40 p.m., a rear-end collision occurred involving Wiens’ Honda Civic and a Chevrolet Tahoe. The collision disabled Wiens’ car and caused it to partially block the fast lane of the highway.
About two minutes later, an oncoming vehicle struck Wiens’ car while the Arroyo Grande man was still inside. The impact threw Wiens onto the highway.
The CHP has not determined how many vehicles struck Wiens while he was lying on the highway. Responders pronounced him dead at the scene.
No one else suffered injuries in the series of collisions.
