Sebastopol man killed in Graton crash identified
A Sebastopol man died early Tuesday after his pickup crashed into a tree along a Graton roadway, authorities said.
The driver was identified by the Sonoma County Coroner’s Office as Reed Killian, 67. He was traveling alone when he crashed just after 7 a.m. on Oak Grove Avenue, west of Highway 116, the CHP said.
His 1989 Toyota pickup ran off the north side of the road and hit a tree. The CHP said the driver, who died at the crash site, wasn’t wearing a seat belt, and his pickup didn’t have air bags.
Killian’s ex-wife, Celia Peterson, said he is survived by three adult children and three grandchildren.
Killian had worked for Allied Builders for most of his career, Peterson said.
“He was a dedicated family man. He was a solid, dependable, hard worker,” she said. “He was just a good man.”
