70-year-old biker injured in solo wreck

A 70-year-old Roseville woman was injured when she lost control of her motorcycle at 9:14 a.m. Saturday on Highway 49 at Shoshone Trail.

Marcia Wolfe was riding north with a large touring group from the Sacramento area and headed to Burney Falls in the Mt. Shasta area.

She lost control of her motorcycle on an S-curve and hit the asphalt berm. The bike went down and Wolfe flew off, sliding to a stop a few feet in front of her vehicle.

Nevada County Consolidated Fire Protection District station No. 84 responded. Wolfe said she was going too fast and lost control, Capt. Mike Stewart said.

California Highway Patrol Officer Ingram said Wolfe was wearing a full coverage helmet, which was badly scarred on the left side. The full-face helmet protected her from substantial injuries to the head and face, Ingram said.

No alcohol was involved, Ingram said.

Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital ambulance transported Wolfe to the Rood Administrative Center, where a Calstar helicopter transported her to a nearby trauma center.

No further information was immediately available.
