Police believe Howard Guber, 75, of Kennesaw, Ga., was driving a 2007 Toyata Camry north on Route 7A in Arlington when he turned left in front of Eric Broderson, 44, of Shaftsbury, who was driving a 2009 KMT motorcycle, south on Route 7A.
Broderson unsuccessfully attempted to stop. His motorcycle slid into the rear passenger side of Guber’s car as Broderson hit the pavement.
