The owners of Laetitia Winery are suing to stop Cal Trans work on highway 101 at El Campo road, where a Cal Poly student was struck and killed in October while riding his motorcycle on the freeway.
Jordan Grant’s family lobbied Cal Trans to stop left-hand turns at that intersection. Many in the community rallied behind them, because several fatal accidents occurred at the intersection. The winery owners allege the closure of the left hand turn lane will hurt their business. Their lawsuit stops work on the project. Jordan Grant’s family is asking people to boycott Laetitia Winery.
Grant was headed south on 101 back in October when a BMW turned into the path of his motorcycle. Grant struck the BMW. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
18-year-old Jordan Grant was from Plano Texas. He was studying electrical engineering at Cal Poly.
