A Wednesday morning head-on collision between a 64-year-old motorcycle rider and a 68-year-old van driver on Route W in Jefferson County, left the Harley Davidson rider pronounced dead at the scene of the accident by a Eureka Fire Protection District paramedic.
The accident happened just 89 feet south of River Ends Drive, according to a Missouri Highway Patrol report. It occurred at 8:40 a.m.
Both men involved in the accident were Eureka residents.
The 2009 Harley Davidson softail was driven by Allyn Chiolero. A 1997 Dodge caravan driven by Kenneth Holt failed to negotiate a curve to the right on Route W and crossed the center line before striking Chiolero head-on.
Chiolero was headed northbound; Holt was headed southbound.
Holt was taken to St. Clare Medical Center by a Eureka ambulance crew.
The highway patrol report indicated both men were wearing safety devices.
