Thor man dies in motorcycle accident

HARDY – A Thor motorcyclist was killed in a single-vehicle accident over the weekend just south of Hardy.

Steven Davis, 38, was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to a press release from Humboldt County Sheriff Dean Kruger, deputies were called to the scene a quarter of a mile south of Hardy at 2:04 a.m. Saturday after witnesses called saying there was a motorcycle in a ditch and an unresponsive male driver nearby.

The accident is still under investigation, but preliminary reports suggest Davis was northbound on Humboldt County Road P66. The motorcycle went off-road to the right and slid through the shoulder.

After going into the ditch, the motorcycle overturned.

Renwick Ambulance and Fire Department and the Humboldt County Medical Examiner’s office also responded to the scene.
