(The Gustine Press-Standard)
A Pacific Grove man died of injuries he suffered in a Friday morning motorcycle accident south of Gustine.
California Highway Patrol spokesman Lance Velez identified the victim as 68-year-old Leslie W. Goode.
Velez said Goode was riding northbound on Highway 33 just south of Cottonwood Road when the motorcycle’s rear tire was punctured and deflated rapidly, causing the rider to lose control and leave the roadway.
Goode was riding the 1951 Vincent motorcycle at a speed of about 50 miles an hour, according to witness statements.
