Motorcyclist killed in PCH crash

A motorcyclist was killed in a collision on Pacific Coast Highway south of Las Posas Road last week.

About 1:30 p.m. May 11, a pickup truck driven by Judith McKay, 73, of Camarillo was traveling north on PCH when it drifted into the southbound lanes and struck a motorcycle and another vehicle, according to a Ventura CHP report.

The motorcyclist, identified as Kevin Schar, 40, of Colorado Springs, Colo., was thrown from his bike. His injuries were fatal and he died at the scene. The gas tank of the motorcycle exploded, causing a brush fire on the southbound right shoulder. Ventura County firefighters put out the fire.

McKay sustained minor injuries and chose to seek her own medical treatment. The other driver was not injured.

The accident is under investigation.
