2019’s fifth death confirmed at Oceano Dunes


In San Luis Obispo County, a fatal crash Thursday marks the fifth death at the Oceano Dunes in 2019.

State parks officials identified the victim as 47-year-old Mario Olivas of Arizona.

Investigators say he was traveling at a high rate of speed on a motorcycle when he crashed and was thrown from the bike.

This comes after a coastal commission meeting was held the same day to discuss the future of off-road vehicles at the dunes.
