Motorcyclist Dies in Freeway Accident

April 23, 1998|RICHARD WARCHOL

A 42-year-old motorcyclist was killed Wednesday morning after clipping two cars and rear-ending a third on the eastbound Ronald Reagan Freeway at Kuehner Drive.

Authorities think John S. Ohlman of Simi Valley might have been weaving his 1993 Harley Davidson in and out of traffic when he clipped the right side-view mirror of a car in the center lane.

The bike then careened into the left side of a car in the right lane before rear-ending the vehicle in front of it, California Highway Patrol Officer Brian DeMattia said.

Ohlman, who was thrown off his bike, was pronounced dead at the scene, authorities said.
