Shortly before 2 p.m., a 68-year-old man driving a Kawasaki motorcycle was headed westbound on Highway 46 when a Toyota SUV pulled out of the Hunter Ranch Golf Course. The Toyota pulled in front of the motorcyclist, who was unable to stop and crashed into the back of the SUV.

The Atascadero man was thrown from his motorcycle, onto the highway, and later pronounced dead at the scene. His name is not being released pending notification of his next of kin.

The driver of the Toyota was not injured.

The collision is under investigation, however it does not appear that alcohol or drugs played a factor in the deadly crash.


This is the fourth person in the last few months that have been in my mind Murdered from Driver’s pulling out in front of Motorcycles and not one Driver being charged with Manslaughter.

Our D.A. is more botherd by some kind of Hanky panky.

A guy shoots the neighbors dog and gets more attention.

You cause a person’s DEATH because of your inattentive action,No big Deal?

IF you’re a Biker, we get no Justice?

And yes I have called Dows office about this issue.


Justice in San Luis Obispo? I doubt that will ever happen. The voters just keep voting in a bunch of criminals.


Us bikers are looked upon as trash. The car that pulled out a upstanding citizen in a Mercedes SUV that was probably wine tasting and living the “slo life”


Because all motorcyclist ride in a safe manner? First off it was a Toyota SUV, hardly a Mercedes and pulling out from a golf course not wine tasting. Yes there are poor divers that should be held accountable, but almost a day doesn’t go by when I don’t see a motorcyclist ride in a unsafe manner, lane splitting in an unsafe manner or speed, riding on the shoulder to get to the front of a line of cars stopped at a light, passing in an unsafe zone. When will motorcyclists be held accountable and ride safely?
