A motorcycle accident on July 8 resulted in a single fatality.
Heath Sagan, 23, of Willits, was driving his Yamaha R1 north on Aaron Cool Drive in Cool at 1:40 a.m. when he turned off onto a dirt embankment, CHP Officer Dan Stark said. “He hit a tree head on, was ejected and hit the ground numerous feet later,” he said.
Sagan was pronounced dead at the scene, where a small grass fire had started as a result of the accident, Stark said. His sobriety has not yet been determined.
