A man driving a Toyota Sequoia collided into two motorcyclists.
The collision took place at around 8:43 p.m. Friday in Long Beach at 2nd Street and Glendora Avenue. Both the victims, Joseph Daroza and Taryn Hawk, were from Huntington Beach. They were both riding Harley Davidson motorcycles east on 2nd street. At the time of the collision, they were attempting to cross Glendora Street on a green light. The driver of the Toyota Sequoia, Nicholas Limer, attempted to make an unsafe left turn onto Glendora Avenue. He made the turn right in front of the motorcyclist and caused the collision.
Daroza was taken to the hospital. He was seriously injured but was in stable condition. He was later released on Sunday. Hawk died at the scene of the accident from head injuries. The two victims were out cruising after leaving the Agenda Trade Show at the Long Beach Convention Center.
Both of the victims worked for Sole Technology. Sole Technology is a Lake Forest based athletic shoe and clothing company. This company had three booths at the Agenda Trade Show. The two victims were there working and promoting the company. Sole Technology has released a statement about the accident.
Taryn Hawk’s coworkers remember him as a positive and outgoing person. He volunteered every year to work at Sole Technology’s Christmas event for children. Hawk also regularly donated to charities. He was a mentor for the company. Taryn Hawk enjoyed surfing at sunrise and living his life to the fullest. A memorial will be held for Hawk this Thursday at Olde World Village in Huntington Beach.
No arrests have been made yet. The Long Beach Police Department is planning to present the case to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office. Nicholas Limer may be charged. The exact charges are still unknown.
