A motorcyclist died in a head-on collision with an SUV on Foothill Road in Carpinteria. This accident occurred early evening on Sunday just east of Toro Canyon Road. A woman in a Mercedes was turning on a curve in the road when she saw a Harley Davidson traveling directly at her. The authorities stated “the Mercedes steered to the right, but was unable to avoid the Harley-Davidson, which collided with the left front of her Mercedes-Benz. The rider was ejected onto the roadway and simultaneously run over,” Noozhawk.
Sadly, the motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene. Foothill Road was closed for two hours for authorities to investigate and clear the scene. The team at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers send our deepest condolences to the friends and family of the motorcyclist.
