Motorcyclist dies in crash on 101

A Eureka man died in a motorcycle accident south of Crescent City on Tuesday afternoon.

Richard Stevens, 68, was driving his 2003 Harley Davidson southbound on U.S. Highway 101 near mile marker 18 around 2 p.m. when he tried passing another vehicle, said California Highway Patrol Sgt. Rick Thoma.

Stevens was passing the vehicle while rounding a curve, and as he finished he ran off the west shoulder of the roadway, hitting a tree that sent him back into the roadway, Thoma said.

Stevens was pronounced dead at the scene.
