San Andreas, CA — 56 year old Michael Woltkamp of Lockeford, CA was killed at approximately 11AM today in a single vehicle accident in Calaveras County.

Woltkamp was eastbound on Hwy. 4 two-tenths of a mile east of Pacific Springs when his 2006 Harley Davidson motorcycle failed to negotiate a 70 degree turn. The motorcycle left the roadway and Woltkamp was ejected from the bike.

His head struck a large rock and despite the fact he was wearing a protective helmet he was pronounced dead at the scene.
