A fatal motorcycle versus automobile accident occurred on Sunday at around 4:20 p.m. on State Route 192 just east of Toro Canyon Road. According to CHP investigators and media reports, a 2003 Harley Davidson being ridden by 53-year-old Robert Kilburn missed a sweeping curve and ran into a 2004 Mercedes Benz. The car’s driver, 83-year-old Barbara Ford who was not injured, attempted to avoid the Harley — she told officers it headed straight toward her instead of following the curve of the road — but it crashed into the left front of her car. Kilburn hit the road and was subsequently run over. A motorcyclist accompanying him on the ride called 9-1-1, and CHP, Sheriff’s deputies, County Fire, and American Medical Response arrived to the scene, closing the road for a couple of hours. Alcohol and drugs are not thought to be involved, and the incident remains under investigation.
