Rossow's motorcycle struck the back of a Ford pickup truck,

throwing him into a fuel truck in the next lane and then to the

pavement, according to the California Highway Patrol. Another car

then ran over him, pinning him underneath, police said.

Rossow was pronounced dead at the scene. The crash closed the

offramp for three and a half hours.
