Motorcycle Crash Now Fatality

Sponsored by:

Groveland, CA — The CHP reports one person has died and another suffers serious injuries after a solo motorcycle crash on Highway 120 and Big Oak Flat Road near the top of Old Priest Grade.

The CHP originally reported that two motorcycles had crashed, but CHP Spokesperson Nick Norton says, “We’ve confirmed that it was one motorcycle that went off the roadway, one person was given CPR, but perished at the scene and another has been medi-flighted to Modesto.”

Norton says initial details of the crash were unclear because of poor radio reception. He says there is no word on why the motorcycle went off the roadway or if alcohol or drugs were involved in the wreck.  The crash is under investigation.
