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