A motorcyclist died last night in San Luis Obispo after hitting the back end of a pickup truck which turned in front of him at Buckley Road and Esperanza. One person is dead following a multi-vehicle crash that knocked out power to some of San Luis Obispo Monday night. The motorcyclist was thrown from his bike and was hit by another car and died at the scene. The car smashed into a power pole, leaving electrical lines across the roadway which knocked out power to more than 350 customers. Alcohol played no part in the accident which is still under investigation.
In another mishap which occurred Sunday afternoon on Huasna Road, the CHP is looking for a man who was involved in a single car crash that seriously injured his passenger. She was taken to the hospital by the driver who has yet to contact the CHP. His name is Dillon McKnight and he is still being sought.
