Fatal Motorcycle Wreck on 154
Over the weekend, there was a fatal motorcycle wreck on Highway 154 above Santa Barbara. According to Santa Barbara’s Noozhawk, the apparent one-vehicle crash happened near East Camino Cielo. Very few details about this fatal motorcycle crash have been released, but we do know that the bike hit a guardrail and several other objects before going over the side of the roadway, near the top of San Marcos Pass.
Initial reports indicate that the 1988 Harley-Davidson motorcycle was going about 50 to 55 miles per hour prior to the crash. For currently unknown reasons, the motorcycle left the roadway. First responders rushed to the scene, where the eastbound portion of the highway had to be closed for a period of time. The cause of this fatal motorcycle wreck may still be under investigation with the California Highway Patrol.
