32-Year-Old Bellflower Man Killed In Mullholland Highway Crash

TOPANGA (CBS) — A 32-year-old man was killed Sunday in a crash on the Mullholland Highway in Topanga, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Joey Jerry Dobbs, of Bellflower, was riding a motorcycle westbound on the highway about 1:15 p.m. as 62-year-old Francisca Santizo of Los Angeles was preparing to make a left turn from the highway onto Cold Canyon Road, said the CHP.

Dobbs, who was approaching Cold Canyon, attempted to pass Santizo’s 2001 Ford Windstar and rear ended the vehicle. The CHP said he was ejected from his bike and onto the roadway.

Dobbs was taken to Kaiser Woodland Hills Hospital where he was pronounced dead just after 7 p.m.
