First Responder Dies in ATV Accident at Oceano Dunes

A San Luis Obispo emergency responder is killed while on his way to a medical call at the Oceano Dunes.

Sergeant Charles Jordan with the California Highway Patrol said, "The ATV crested a very steep dune and unfortunately lost control of his ATV and it landed on top of him, inflicting major injuries to the rider. The ambulance followed the ATV over the crest of the dune, was unable to stop and the front of the ambulance made impact with the upside-down ATV."

Christopher Meadows, 24, was riding a four-wheel-drive all-terrain vehicle at the Dunes on Sunday, leading a four-wheel-drive ambulance to the scene of a first-aid call, when he crested a dune he had previously ridden and started heading down a steep grade, according to sheriff's officials.
