Traffic investigators are asking for the public's help in identifying a motorcyclist who was riding
alongside a 19-year-old Thousand Oaks resident, who was killed in a traffic collision on Westlake
Boulevard earlier this month.
Christian Eitelbach was riding his motorcycle northbound on Westlake Boulevard at a high rate of speed
when he collided with a sedan driven by Cindy Nah of Simi Valley. Eitelbach died of injuries he suffered
during the collision.
Eitelbach had a small video camera mounted on his motorcycle while he rode that day. The video shows
Eitelbach was riding alongside another motorcyclist prior to and during the collision. The other
motorcyclist was wearing all black riding gear, including a black helmet. The motorcycle was a black
performance bike with no visible license plate on the back.
Investigators have interviewed Eitelbach's friends and family members, but the motorcyclist has not
been identified. The other motorcyclist did not stop at the scene of the fatal collision.
Eitelbach and the other unidentified motorcyclist had been riding on Decker Canyon Road in the minutes
leading up to the collision, which occurred at approximately 2:31 p.m. on November 3, 2012.
Investigators have prepared a portion of Eitelbach's video for release to the public hoping someone will
recognize the motorcyclist depicted in the video and come forward with information. The video footage,
as well as access to the damaged vehicles involved in the collision will be provided upon request.
Anyone with information about the motorcyclist's identity is asked to contact Deputy Shawn Holzberger
