Motorcyclist dies in Friday morning collision

KONO TAYEE – The California Highway Patrol reports that a crash took the life of a motorcycle rider Friday morning.

CHP Officer Adam Garcia said CHP dispatch received a call about 8:30 a.m. from some boaters who said they saw a motorcycle down an embankment just off Highway 20, west of Bruner Drive in the Kono Tayee area.

Garcia said the CHP's preliminary investigation indicates that the motorcyclist was riding at a high rate of speed heading westbound on Highway 20 and failed to negotiate a curve in the road.

The rider and motorcycle flew over the road edge and landed in a rocky area of Clear Lake's shoreline, said Garcia.

Garcia said it appeared that the rider – whose name has not been released pending family notification – died on impact, but the final determination will be made by a coroner's report.

The investigation, Garcia reported, is continuing, led by CHP Officer Brian Engle.
