Woman Killed, Ryan Pavone Injured in Motorcycle Crash on Highway 46

3 Vehicles Involved in Fatal Paso Robles Accident

Paso Robles, CA (September 16, 2018) – A woman was killed and a man suffered serious injuries in a motorcycle accident in Paso Robles. The fatal crash occurred on the evening of September 16 on Highway 46.

Ryan Pavone, 30, of Porterville was riding a Harley Davidson motorcycle east on Highway 46, near Arbor Road. He was carrying a passenger, a 27-year-old Porterville woman.

Lemoore resident Daniel Smith, 37, had stopped in his Nissan on the right shoulder of eastbound Highway 46. As Pavone approached the Nissan, his motorcycle drifted and rear-ended the Nissan.

Pavone and the motorcycle slid, while the impact threw the woman passenger from the motorcycle. At the same time, Brian Terrizzi, 49, of Templeton was driving a Ford westbound on Highway 46. He could not avoid the motorcycle and the two vehicles collided.

Pavone suffered major injuries in the crash and was taken to a local hospital. His unidentified passenger died in the accident. Both were wearing helmets.

Understanding Car Insurance Costs

Before buying a new car, you may want to consider all costs of owning a vehicle not just your monthly car payment.
