Woman Killed After Crashing Motorcycle in Nipomo

A 49-year-old woman from Arroyo Grande was killed last month in October after driving her motorcycle off the road in Nipomo.

“The 49-year-old woman was riding a 2002 Harley Davidson westbound on Camino Caballo about 5:30 p.m. and attempted to turn left onto southbound Osage Street in Nipomo. For unknown reasons, she lost control of the motorcycle and veered east, off the edge of Osage Street, according to a California Highway Patrol news release. The motorcycle then drove into bushes and struck a wooden fence. The rider was ejected and struck a tree, while the motorcycle came to rest against a stone wall” (SanLuisObispo.com).

This woman is about the third motorcycle rider that has been killed on San Luis Obispo County roads. Previously, two other motorcycle drivers died from a fatal crash in the beginning of October.
