A 67-year-old Mariposa man was killed Tuesday afternoon in an auto accident on Highway 140 east of Cobey Lane, near Midpines, northeast of Mariposa.
The man's name has been withheld pending the notification of his family, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The man was driving a 2000 Kawasaki motorcycle eastbound on the highway when a 2008 Hyundai SUV driven by Tammy Lawson, 41, of Mariposa, crossed over the double yellow lines into the eastbound lane, resulting in a head-on collision with the motorcycle. Lawson and her 9-year-old passenger were not injured.
The collision remains under investigation.
