Never heard a thing on the News or anywhere.

Anyone in the North Bay got any info/update?

From the Santa Rosa Press Democrat:
A 50-year-old East Bay man died Sunday afternoon after his motorcycle collided with an oncoming car on Arnold Drive near Sonoma, authorities said.

The Pleasant Hill motorcyclist, whose name was not released, was traveling south toward Wagner Road at an unknown speed when a 2016 Chevrolet Malibu turned directly into his path about 12:52 p.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

The Malibu driver, identified as Warren J. Saccente, 61, of Purcellville, Va., had been traveling east on a private driveway at 23555 Arnold Dr. After stopping at the intersection with the road, the driver saw a southbound vehicle turning into the private drive. Believing the intersection to be clear, the Malibu began to turn onto northbound Arnold Drive — right into the path of the 1997 Harley Davidson, the CHP said.

The motorcyclist braked and “attempted to take evasive action” but could not prevent a collision with the Malibu, according to a CHP news release. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The rider was southbound here (Google Maps link) and the driver was turning left from the winery on the west side. Another southbound vehicle entering the winery at the same time screened the view between the motorcyclist and the left-turning driver.

RIP, Pleasant Hill Harley rider.

Not sure regarding the DUI. However, I saw the CHP accident paint marks and riding into work this morning. I commute 121 regularly and that private driveway as well as the turn just after into the Sunset market area are always dangerous. RIP Harley rider.

There was a post from years ago, and if the old noggin has it right, it was maybe yours, pointing to the untimely passing of a rider (and maybe the passenger too) exactly in this kind of situation of staying hidden behind a vehicle from another incoming vehicle. Those words have stayed with me all these years, and I am very thankful for that post. Actually, just 2 weeks ago, that very scenario was could've unfolded with me, and the lesson learnt years ago spared shedloads of tears.

My first post on this crash scenario was in 2004, The Rolling Blind Spot. It also comes up in the threads Traffic Tactics: Left-Turning Vehicles and Hidden Hazards. Thank you for mentioning it. It's gratifying to hear that it may have saved your butt.
