San Luis Obispo, CA (September 16, 2018) – A woman was killed and a man seriously injured Sunday evening, September 16th, after their motorcycle collided with two other vehicles, according to California Highway Patrol. At around 6 p.m., 30-year-old Ryan Pavone of Porterville was riding a 2016 Harley Davidson motorcycle eastbound with his passenger, a 27-year-old woman, on Highway 46 near Arbor Road. Ahead of the pair on the road was Daniel Smith, 37, who was stopped in his 2017 Nissan on the right shoulder lane of eastbound Highway 46. CHP said Pavone was driving down the road, his motorcycle drifted rightward onto the shoulder, colliding with the left rear bumper of Smith’s vehicle. The impact launched the female passenger forward from the motorcycle while Pavone and the motorcycle were thrown towards the opposite traffic direction.
