The victim of a single-vehicle crash on Lake Hughes Road on Tuesday “succumbed to his injuries” at a local hospital, according to CHP officials.

Henry Miller, of Canyon Country, was riding a three-wheeled 2010 Bomba Spyder at an “unsafe speed” and lost control of the bike, said California Highway Patrol Officer Josh Greengard.

Miller and the bike crashed into a roadway sign and the rock embankment before they came to rest in the westbound lane.

The crash occurred around 1 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 1 on Lake Hughes Road near Dry Gultch Road, said Inspector Joey Marron with the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

Miller was transported down the road by American Medical Response officials to an dirt area where a Los Angeles County Fire Air Operations helicopter airlifted him to Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital with major injuries, Greengard said.

CHP officers were still on scene at 3:45 p.m. investigating the crash.

  2. God be with their family and friends. ❤️

    This was very tragic. My condolences to his family and friends. I dislike inaccurate reporting. I was on this ride with Mr. Miller. I’ve ridden with him a dozen times. He is always the last one in the group (riding in the back) and never felt pressured to “keep up.” He “rode his own ride” at a safe and leisurely pace. We always pulled over and waited for him, and it was never more than 5 minutes. This time, he didn’t show up. We don’t know what actually happened as he was behind everyone. But I can guarantee you, Henry was not traveling at an “unsafe speed.” That is only speculation and gives riders a bad reputation. The officer should have more accurately said, “It is unknown if speed was a factor.” Henry Miller was an exception to the statistics. R.I.P. my friend.

    • Stuart Simons says:

      I too have ridden with Henry many times and don’t think I have ever met Hank. I say this because the following is what I wrote on another site. You can see we both have the same assessment of Henry’s riding;
      With all due respect to Highway Patrol Officer Josh Greengard, I have it on good authority that Henry crashed due to a medical event that incapacitated him. I can tell you from numerous rides with Henry, He was a conservative rider and always road at the back of the pack so that he could maintain a comfortable, safe speed. Officer Greengard I urge you to look further into this matter. Please view the crash seen photos again and ask yourself, if someone riding at the speed limit or below lost consciousness in a turn, causing a 3 wheeled motorcycle to veer off the road, hitting a sign with one of the steered wheels (this motorcycle has two front wheels and one in the back), causing it to flip over and hit a rock, could this falsely appear to be due to excess speed?
      Henry was a great person and nothing changes, he has passed away, other than its not fare to have the record show that died recklessly if he was not reckless.
