Highway 101 crash kills 1 person near Arroyo Grande

A crash between a motorcycle and a car on Sunday evening killed an 18-year-old man from Plano, Texas, according to the CHP.

The crash happened at about 4:50 p.m. on southbound Highway 101 near El Campo Road, the CHP said.

A 2018 BMW, driven by a 42-year-old Arroyo Grande man, was traveling eastbound on El Campo Road and was “in the process of making an unsafe left turn,” directly in front of the motorcycle, a 2015 Yamaha, the CHP said.

The motorcyclist, who has not yet been identified, slid into the left side of the BMW and was fatally injured, the CHP said.

The driver of the BMW was not injured.

The CHP asks anyone who witnessed the crash to call them at 805-594-8700.
