NORTH COUNTY — On the afternoon of Saturday, June 3, a fatal collision occurred on Highway 58 in North County, resulting in the death of a motorcyclist. The California Highway Patrol (CHP) reported that the incident took place at approximately 1:46 p.m., north of West Pozo Road.
According to CHP officials, 52-year-old Peggy Masuda was riding a Harley Davidson southbound at an unknown speed. Simultaneously, 74-year-old Danny Oster was driving a 2021 Ford Raptor, traveling northbound at around 35 mph.
The collision occurred when Masuda drifted across a set of double yellow lines directly into the path of Oster’s vehicle. The sudden maneuver left Oster with little time to react, resulting in a devastating crash.
