Bowman had been riding with his son and two other relatives when the collision occurred. He was operating his motorcycle in the second position within the group of four as they entered a left-hand curve in the roadway just prior to the stop intersection with Beaver Valley Road. According to witnesses, Bowman appeared to brake prior to heading off the right shoulder of the Chiwawa Loop Road. His motorcycle traveled down a small embankment and impacted with the trees.

Bowman and the other three riders in his group were not taking part in the “Toura Tech” motorcycle event being held in Plain.
