Authorities Identity John Walker as Motorcyclist Killed in Middletown Crash
MIDDLETOWN, CA (March 12, 2021) – The Lake County Sheriff’s Office has identified 61-year-old John Michael Walker as the man who died in a motorcycle accident in Middletown.
The accident happened around 12:49 p.m. Sunday, March 7 on Butts Canyon Road just west of the Napa County line.
Walker, a 61-year-old Sacramento man, was riding a 2000 Honda RC51 motorcycle westbound at around 55 to 60 miles per hour when he lost control of the motorcycle while negotiating a sweeping curve in the roadway.
The motorcycle overturned onto its left side and began traveling in a northeasterly direction toward a metal guardrail and hit it. It then rotated, ejecting Walker.
Medical personnel attempted saving Walker, but he died at the scene.
The CHP said Walker was wearing a helmet at the time of the collision.
Neither drugs nor alcohol are suspected as factors in the accident, which remains under investigation.
We would like to express our sincere condolences to the bereaved family and friends of the victim.
