On Friday, an 18-year-old UCSB student was killed in a motorcycle crash in Isla Vista. According to Santa Barbara’s Noozhawk, the wreck happened on El Colegio Road near the entrance of the university, just after 4:00 p.m. Very few details have been released about this fatal motorcycle crash, but initial reports indicate that the motorcycle rider reportedly turned right onto El Colegio just before the crash.
For currently unknown reasons, he veered to the right and hit the raised concrete curb beside the street. He was ejected from the motorcycle and hit a bus stop bench and a pole. Although first responders rushed to the scene, he did not survive his injuries. The cause of this motorcycle crash is still under investigation with local law enforcement officials.
