A 62-year-old man was killed in a motorcycle accident Tuesday, July 8, near Bucks Lake.

According to the California Highway Patrol, Blair David Imrie, of Goldstream, British Columbia, was killed after he crashed his bike on a curve.



The accident took place just after noon on the Oro Quincy Highway, west of Bucklin Road.

Imrie was riding his Kawasaki motorcycle eastbound and was attempting to negotiate a right-to-left curve. According to the CHP report, he was traveling too fast for the road conditions and drove into a ditch.

Imrie was unable to regain control before driving into a culvert drainage and hitting a rock embankment.

Imrie was ejected and the motorcycle came to rest on top of him.

Passing motorists and friends Imrie was riding with performed CPR. Shortly afterward, a Forest Service fire truck with firefighters stopped and assisted with CPR.

Attempts to revive Imrie were unsuccessful.
