Oceano Dunes Accident Costs Sacramento Teen His Life
A Sacramento teen lost his life on July 13 at Oceano Dunes as he followed another person on a vehicle over a 30-foot tall sand dune and was thrown from his motorcycle. The 18-year-old was the sixth fatality at the popular off-road recreation site this year. Following a meeting by the Coastal Commission, it was decided that restricting the use of off-road vehicles at the site would be tabled and taken up next year sometime before summer. It was reported that hundreds of people turned out for the Oceano Dunes meeting to indicate their support for the popular outdoor sport. I want to extend my heartfelt sympathy to the family and friends of this young man for their tragic loss.
