Saturday crash claims life of Elk Grove man

MIDDLETOWN – An Elk Creek man died Saturday as the result of a motorcycle collision.


Tracy Griffin, 35, was the victim of the fatal crash, which occurred at 3 p.m. Saturday on Butts Canyon Road, according to CHP Officer Steve Tanguay.


Griffin was riding his 2003 Suzuki GSXR1000 motorcycle behind a small group of motorcycle riders on Butts Canyon Road heading toward Middletown from the Napa-Lake County line when he failed to negotiate a left curve and went off of the roadway, Tanguay reported.


Tanguay said Griffin's motorcycle struck the guard rail, which caused Griffin to be thrown from the motorcycle.


Griffin sustained fatal injuries as a result of this collision and was pronounced deceased at the scene, Tanguay said.


When Griffin didn't show up at the meeting point with the group of motorcyclists, they went back to look for him. Tanguay said they found Griffin where the collision occurred.


Tanguay said that CHP Officer Rob Hearn is investigating the collision.
