This accident was horrific. We were driving up to meet the parents for Easter dinner heading up the Read Morehill-decided to take the long route. We noticed a stopped car on the opposing side of traffic and what looked like an overturned motorcycle-as we desperately hoped it wasn't-as we approached closer it certainly was. There was a stopped vehicle behind the motorcycle and a few people standing about 10ft or so from the poor man's body. A few motorcyclists were pulled over to the shoulder and another man on his cell on our side of traffic. After passing not more than 5ft from the accident and seeing this man, I knew he had unfortunately passed. I've never seen anything like it. It appeared there were no other cars involved but who would know if there were unless there were witnesses that stepped forward? The police didn't come down the hill for about 7-10 minutes after passing the accident. Seeing what had happened to this man was the worst thing I've ever seen and left me distraught. I pray for this man and his family and pray justice is served where deserved. RIP

Unfortunately I saw much of the accident. I was traveling west on PVDS near Wayfarers and saw theRead Moreg entleman fly through the air and land on the medium strip. We stopped and tried to help. His motorcycle group said he hit the opposite curb. He actually had a pulse for some minutes though it grew very weak. A critical care nurse provided most of the CPR. It took what seemed to be very long (~15 minutes) for a private ambulance to arrive after two sheriff cars arrived. There is a fire station less than 1/2 mile to the west but perhaps empty due to Easter. There are also fire stations in San Pedro so would have expected a faster response. Paramedics arrived after the ambulance around the time I left. I assume he didn't make it probably due to massive internal injuries but have been trying to find out any facts. Does anyone know the ambulance company or the hospital, his name or any other facts? I feel awful about this guy and hope he was doing something he loved, riding on a beautiful afternoon with a wonderful view. RIP.

Thank you for all of this detail. So why are there so many chalk markings on the road where itRead Morehappe ned, including on that median? It seems they are treating this quite differently, and I had heard to response sirens over the course of an unusual amount of time. My children and I drive over that spot at least four times a day, and we just cannot fill in the gaps. ALSO, does anyone know about the bicyclist who was struck on PV Drive South/ West about a month ago? I saw that happen, but then there was nothing published (that I know). I am not referring to the recent incident on Palos Verdes Drive North. Thanks!
