Motorcyclist ejected from bike after colliding with two vehicles in Torrance
Jeffrey Dorley was identified as the motorcycle rider who died at the scene of a deadly three-vehicle accident at the intersection of Hawthorne Boulevard and Halison Street in Torrance last Sunday, according to a Patch article.
As mentioned in the news report, Jeffrey Dorley, 48, of Redondo Beach, was traveling in a 2006 Kawasaki motorcycle, heading northbound on Hawthorne Boulevard.
Dorley suddenly struck a 2002 Toyota Sequoia and a 2016 Toyota Prius at the intersection. An officer reported that the motorcyclist had attempted to weave between the two vehicles to pass.
As a result, Dorley was ejected from his bike, and Torrance police as well as others arrived. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.
Additionally, the 51-year-old woman in the Sequoia and the 34-year-old driver of the Prius were reportedly uninjured from the crash, as well as their passengers.
