The Toyota struck the front end of the Triumph motorcycle and partially ejected Killion. Killion suffered major lower extremity fractures and was transported to Los Robles Hospital and Medical Center for treatment. Diaz was treated on scene by Ventura County Fire Paramedics and was released with no known injuries. Killion was wearing an approved DOT helmet at the time of the collision. No arrests were made and alcohol/drugs were not a factor in this collision.
