MIRAMAR, Calif. (May 28, 2024) — Joaquin Dominik Jimenez, 28, of Half Moon Bay, died Saturday night when his motorcycle and a pickup truck collided on Highway 1 in Miramar.

The motorcyclist was struck by a driver in a pickup truck on Highway 1 at Mirada Road, just north of Half Moon Bay, according to East Bay Times.
