An apparent case of road rage is reportedly to blame for a deadly collision on the 101 Freeway in Camarillo Monday.Witnesses say a man on a motorcycle made obscene hand gestures to the driver of a motor home, 68-year-old Michael Antoine. The 57-year-old biker, whose name has been withheld, then pulled in front of the vehicle and suddenly stopped.

CHP Officer Terry Ulrich said the motor home was traveling about 55 mph at the time and couldn't avoid slamming into the motorcycle.

The biker was thrown under the RV and dragged about 75 feet before coming loose in the southbound travel lanes. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Associated Press contributed to this story.
