Motorcyclist Killed in Gilroy Hit-and-Run

Motorcyclist Killed in Gilroy Hit-and-Run

Posted By The Dunnion Law Firm || 24-Jun-2009

JUNE 23, 2009 - An unidentified 40-year-old Gilroy male was killed Tuesday evening after colliding with an SUV and an unidentified pickup truck in a hit-and-run accident.

The car accident happened around 5:50 p.m. on the corner of Watsonville Road and Redwood Retreat Road.

A silver 2005 Silver Toyota Tacoma TRD Sport SUV, driven by a 31-year-old Santa Cruz woman, was traveling southbound on Watsonville Road at an unknown rate of speed and attempted to turn right onto Redwood Retreat Road, according to the California Highway Patrol.

A silver and black 2008 Honda Interceptor motorcycle was stopped at the stop sign on Redwood Retreat Road with an unidentified white Nissan pickup behind the motorcycle at the stop sign. As the Tacoma made an unsafe turning movement, it failed to maintain its lead and crossed over the solid double yellow lines of eastbound Redwood Retreat Road, impacting the motorcycle head on and forcing the bike to crash into the front end of the pickup.

The driver of the motorcycle was pinned underneath the right side of the motorcycle and was pronounced dead at the scene by Santa Clara Count Fire Paramedics. The roadway of Watsonville Road and Redwood Retreat Road was partially obstructed for about two hours. Driving under the influence is not suspected, and no arrests have been made as of Wednesday morning.

Police are still looking for the pickup that left the scene. Anyone with any info can call the Hollister-Gilroy CHP office at 848-2324.
