A motorcyclist died Friday afternoon in a crash with a black Jeep Cherokee on Highway 1 near Ardath Drive in Cambria.

Shortly after 3 p.m., the driver of the Jeep turned onto the shoulder of the road to make a U-turn, and then pulled into the path of a yellow motorcycle. The motorcyclist died at the scene.

Often people see, hear and don’t process that input. Defensive driving is all about this phenomena. I too ride motorcycles, the ultimately required defensive driving vehicle. The best to both of them.

No drugs or alcohol involved, just stupidity in flipping a U-turn on the highway.


In the last couple of years, there’s been a rash of car’s killing People on Motorcycles,

Does anybody know if the Driver’s have been prosecuted?


One in Paso,

One in AG,

Two in Nipomo,

Now one in Cambria.

The Excuse, But I didn’t see them is so Weak.


Drugs or alcohol may not have played a part but I bet I know what DID play a part…can’t say though, my comment would probably be censored.
