   According to CHP on May 20, 2017  Robert Gaa (59) of Valley Springs was riding his 2006 Harley Davidson motorcycle westbound on Hwy 12 near Hwy 49 in San Andreas, sometime between the evening of Saturday May 20 and Sunday May 21, 2017.

   Gaa was negotiating a curve to his left at an unknown speed when he slowed his motorcycle to drift right and off the roadway.

   Gaa traveled down an embankment where he collided with several trees before coming to a stop in a grass pasture below the north roadway edge of Hwy 12.
