Aaron Clayton Dead in Marin County Motorcycle Accident on Shoreline Highway
MARIN COUNTY, CA (October 20, 2020) – Saturday morning, Aaron Clayton died in a fiery crash on Shoreline Highway near Olema Bolinas Road.
According to California Highway Patrol, authorities received the report of a crash about 10:00 a.m. It happened on northbound Shoreline Highway near Olema Bolinas Road.
Reports revealed that while driving, 45-year-old Aaron Clayton attempted to pass on the left side over double yellow lines. Meanwhile, a northbound BMW SUV tried to make a left turn to Olema Bolinas Road.
As a result, the SUV and the motorcycle collided. Afterward, the motorcycle crashed on the road, came to rest in the field, and caught fire.
Then, the SUV driver rushed to help Aaron Clayton who was unresponsive after the crash. The driver moved Clayton out of danger while the fire spreads to nearby vegetations.
