July 19, 2016
A 65-year-old Atascadero man has died from injuries he received more than a week ago in a crash involving six motorcycles on Highway 1 near San Simeon. Glenn Paul McMahon succumbed to his injuries at 2 a.m. on Monday, according to the CHP.
On July 10 at about 2 p.m., a vehicle slowed to take a left turn on Pico Avenue in front of a group of eight motorcyclists from North San Luis Obispo County. Six of the motorcyclists did not notice the vehicle’s turn signal or brake lights, began to swerve to miss the vehicle, lost control of their motorcycles and crashed, according to a CHP press release.
Kathleen McMahon, 59, of Atascadero; Matthew Sumner, 51, of Atascadero; Michael Leland, 47, of Templeton; Gustavo Hurtado, 41, of Paso Robles and Jim Restine, 49, of Atascadero were also involved in the crash.
CHP officers do not believe drugs or alcohol played a role in the accident.
