A motorcycle rider died Tuesday morning after his bike reportedly ran off Sierra College Boulevard. The driver, whose name was not released as of press time pending notification of next of kin, was riding southbound on Sierra College Boulevard approaching Twelve Bridges when he came up to a left curve, lost control and slid down a 20-foot embankment, according to Sgt. Doug Milligan of the Auburn area California Highway Patrol Office. Milligan said it’s unknown why the man’s Harley Davidson motorcycle left the road at 10:58 a.m. Milligan said the rider was not visible from the road. Officers believe the property owner spotted the biker and called 911. The rider was pronounced dead on the scene, Milligan said. ~ Jenifer Gee
