One is dead and another remains in stable condition after a Friday night accident on busy Second Street involved two motorcycles and an SUV driven by the owner of a prominent Long Beach business.

According to police, the incident occurred at the intersection of Second St. and Glendora Ave. at around 8:45PM when 68-year-old Nicolas Limer attempted to make an unsafe left turn directly in front of the motorcycles, who were passing through a green light heading eastbound on Second st..

Limer’s 2005 Toyota Sequoia collided with the two Harley Davidsons, killing Taryn Hawk, 35, and severely injuring Joseph Daroza, 30. Daroza was transferred to a local hospital with stable vital signs; Hawk was pronounced deceased when Long Beach police officers arrived at the scene.

Following an interview, Limer, who owns waterfront restaurant McKenna’s On The Bay and participates in many charitable causes throughout the city, was released at the scene. Long Beach Police Department officials, however, say they will be asking the District Attorney to consider criminal charges, most likely vehicular manslaughter.

Detectives have not stated whether alcohol was involved or not.
