Pedestrian, motorcyclist injured in Friday crash

LAKEPORT – A pedestrian and a motorcycle rider both sustained injuries after a Friday collision on Highway 20.

Jes Shoaf, 36, of Lucerne and Grant Murray, 73, of Upper Lake were hurt in the crash, according to California Highway Patrol Officer Adam Garcia.

Garcia said that Shoaf was walking from south to north across Highway 20 at the intersection with the Nice-Lucerne Cutoff at 5:49 p.m. when he was hit by a 2002 Harley Davidson motorcycle driven by Murray, who was traveling westbound.

Murray – who was ejected from the motorcycle and sustained moderate injuries – was transported to Sutter Lakeside Hospital by Northshore Fire Protection District's Nice ambulance, Garcia reported.

Northshore Fire personnel also transported Shoaf to Sutter Lakeside, said Garcia. Shoaf sustained major injuries.

Garcia said Shoaf is believed to have been under the influence of alcohol at the time of collision.

Officer Mark Barnes is investigating the incident, Garcia reported.
