San Andreas, CA — The Calaveras County Coroner´s Office and the Highway Patrol have positively identified 68 year old Larry Wayne Caprio as the motorcyclist who was killed in a two vehicle accident Monday afternoon on Hwy 4 seven-tenths of a mile east of the upper end of Moran Rd.
Caprio had moved to Angels Camp just three days ago from San Dimas, CA. He was alone on the 2006 Harley Davidson when the accident occured.
While heading westbound, Caprio allowed his bike to cross over the yellow double lines as he was negotiating a series of “S” curves and directly into the path of a 1997 Ford pickup truck driven by 63 year old Joseph Aquilina of Camp Connell. Aquilina was not injured.
Of the six traffic fatalities in Calaveras County this year, four have been motorcyclists according to C.H.P. Officer Jaime Castillo.
