Coroner identifies motorcyclist killed near Negro Bar

The Sacramento County Coroner's office has released the name of a motorcyclist killed when a car pulled in front of him on Greenback Lane near the entrance to Negro Bar State Park.

The motorcyclist was identified as 41-year-old Shane Curtis Clark. His hometown was not available.

Folsom police said that at about 2 p.m. Clark was traveling eastbound on Greenback Lane when a westbound car turned from Greenback Lane into the path of motorcycle. Clark was thrown from his motorcycle and struck by a white van traveling eastbound on Greenback lane.

Folsom police determined that the driver of the car, Kaman Tate Hobbs, 23, of Truckee was operating his vehicle while in possession of a suspended California drivers license. Also, Hobbs' young son was in the vehicle and not properly restrained.

Hobbs was booked into Sacramento County Jail on suspicion of vehicular manslaughter, child endangerment and driving with a suspended license.

When police officers arrived at the scene, they found four off-duty California Department of Corrrections and Rehabilitation correctional officers administering aid to the badly injured motorcyclist.

They were joined by Folsom Fire Department personnel and an ambulance crew. Clark was pronounced dead at the scene despite attempts to save his life.
