CHP Releases Name Of Lompoc Motorcyclist Killed In Crash

The Lompoc Pizza Garden is hosting a benefit Monday to help raise money for the family of a man killed last week in a motorcycle accident.

The California Highway Patrol confirmed that Anthony Terrones, 22, of Lompoc died Friday in a Highway 101 crash near Gaviota. 

Lompoc Pizza Garden, 1017 North H St., will donate 50 percent of the price of all large pizzas purchased Monday to help with funeral expenses.

Additionally, a Go Fund Me page has been set up to accept donations for costs of the funeral.

Terrones was riding a Honda motorcycle at a high speed when he came up behind a Chevy Impala driven by John A. Hertz, 55, of Helendale, California, according to the CHP. 

The Honda rider struck the back of the Impala and was ejected from his motorcycle, landing in the roadway, the CHP said.

Jaime Jimenez, 21, of Lompoc, was riding behind on a Yamaha motorcycle, also at a high rate of speed, and struck the injured rider, then lost control and slid into the median, the CHP said.

Terrones was critically injured, and despite CPR being performed, was declared dead at the scene.

Funeral arrangements are pending.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
