Brian Montgomery Arrested after Fatal DUI Accident with Motorcyclist

 
BEAR VALLEY, CA (June 20, 2018) – A man was killed Wednesday afternoon after his motorcycle was struck by a suspected DUI driver. 65-year-old Geoffrey Ramsay of Oregon, was later identified as the fatality in this incident.
 
According to the California Highway Patrol, the collision took place at about 1:15 PM. A 2001 Toyota 4 Runner, driven by 48-year-old Brian Montgomery of Dorrington, was heading west on Highway 4 when it drifted into the path of a 2016 Indianmaster, driven by Ramsay.
 
The Toyota collided head-on with the motorcycle, which was pulling a trailer, before overturning and blocking the roadway. Ramsay was pronounced dead at the scene, while Montgomery was airlifted to Sutter Roseville Medical Center and later admitted to the Marshall Medical Center for further treatment.
 
Montgomery was arrested for DUI causing injury with a blood alcohol level above .08 percent. The Alpine County District Attorney’s Office is currently working to identify additional charges that the DA may file against the DUI driver.
 
Highway 4 was temporarily shut down for approximately four hours to make way for site cleanup and a crime scene investigation. No other information is available at this time.
