    Yesterday just east of the auburn/antelope off ramp around 12:40 pm there was also a motorcycle accident. When I passed chp etc had not arrived yet. the center lane was blocked by a car and the cyclist and his bike were down. There were about 5 people around him, one was holding his head in her lap. Does anyone know what happen to that poor guy?

    Dear Shawn & James,
    Regardless of you two bickering, an elderly gentlemen unexpectedly died, he was killed in an automobile accident-whether it’s news or not…& it matters to his family. I guess now you’ll turn on me because either you’re argumentative &/or don’t care about the real story. I apologize if I offend, I’m just a silly girl that cares about people. OK, now let the attacks begin…….my condolences to the family…at least someone out there cares.
