A 58-year-old Redway man was killed yesterday evening when his motorcycle collided with a Toyota truck making a three-point turn on Redwood Drive, sending him over a metal guard rail and down a 250-foot embankment.

Leo Durr was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to the California Highway Patrol, Durr was travelling southbound on Redwood Drive at an unknown speed when he came across a 2017 Toyota Tacoma that had attempted an unsuccessful U-turn. As the Toyota was backing up to make a three-point turn, Durr’s Honda motorcycle hit it from behind.

Durr is the 26th traffic related fatality in Humboldt County this year.

The crash remains under investigation. See the full release from CHP below.
