Motorcyclist Dies In Forestville Crash Monday Evening

A motorcyclist died when he collided with a vehicle on River Road near Forestville on Monday evening, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Dustin Eli Green, 34, of Forestville, was riding a 2007 Kawasaki west on River Road in unincorporated Sonoma County around 7:15 p.m., CHP Officer Tim Randall said.

Green was speeding when he tried to turn onto Trenton Road, lost control of the motorcycle and collided with a Plymouth Voyager minivan driven east on River Road by a 52-year-old Rio Nido woman, Randall said.

The woman tried to avoid the motorcycle by turning right and locking the brakes on the minivan, Randall said. Green, who was wearing a helmet, died at the scene.

The woman was not injured, Randall said.

CHP investigators believe Green may have been drinking alcohol prior to the crash, Randall said.
