Manhattan Beach Accident Leaves Motorcyclist and Pedestrian Dead


An accident Tuesday morning in Manhattan Beach left two people dead.

The accident happened at 5:25 a.m. near the intersection of Eighth St. and Sepulveda Blvd. Daniel Matthew Linderman, a 41-year-old Torrance resident, was riding his motorcyce northbound on Sepulveda. He struck Ruby May Hixson, an 87-year-old pedestrian from Manhattan Beach. The motorcycle, a 2007 Kawasaki Ninja sport bike, landed on its side two blocks north of the collision.

Both the pedestrian and the cyclist were pronounced dead at the scene.
