Grant Coles (13104)



2/10/2011: Grant Coles was killed and his son, Joseph Coles, 19, suffered major injuries when the motorcycle they were riding collided with a CHP car on US 101. According to the CHP, the patrol car tried to stop the motorcycle for speeding at about 9:30 p.m. on southbound Highway 101 north of Ralston Avenue. Instead, the pair reportedly exited the highway at Holly Street, then re-entered southbound 101 at Harbor Boulevard. As the motorcycle approached Brittan Avenue, a patrol car on the on-ramp began accelerating to assist in the pursuit, officials said. The motorcycle then reportedly crossed several lanes of traffic before colliding with the patrol car entering the freeway. http://patch.com/california/halfmoonbay/el-granada-man-seriously-injured-burlingame-man-dead-c819b7c4d7
