An 18-year-old motorcyclist was killed on Highway 101 on October 7, 2018. The victim was later identified as Jordan Benjamin Grant, a recent Plano Academy High School graduate, starting his college career at California Polytechnic State University.

Grant was heading southbound on Highway 101, traveling to Vandenberg Air Force Base to watch the SpaceX Falcon rocket launch at about 4:50PM. He was near El Campo Road when a 2018 BMW, traveling eastbound, was in the process of making an unsafe left turn. The 2018 BMW turned directly in front of Grant’s motorcycle, a 2015 Yamaha, and Grant slid into the side of the BMW and was fatally injured. The 42-year-old driver of the BMW sustained no injuries.

CalPoly announced Grant’s death and held a service for him that Wednesday in the University Union Plaza.
