Gasquet man dies in crash on 199

A Gasquet man died after a motorcycle crash in which he went off U.S. Highway 199 and down a steep embankment on Saturday, authorities said.

Between the hours of 9:30 and 10:30 p.m., Donald L. Hartwig, 56, was driving his 2004 Harley Davidson northbound on the highway south of Hardscrabble Creek when he went off the roadway, authorities said.

He sustained fatal injuries as a result.

Hartwig had been reported missing after he got separated from a friend while they were on a motorcycle ride, said sheriff’s Commander Bill Steven.

Del Norte County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue aided in locating the man’s body.
