The accident took place at 6:14 p.m., and crews were at the scene for about an hour, according to a Woodbridge firefighter.
There were two people riding on the motorcycle at the time of the crash, said Galt Police. One person was killed, and the second party was seriously injured.
One motorcyclist was taken by air to an area hospital, while the other was transported by ambulance. No further details were available at press time.
Puppy allegedly stolen from front yard
A 10-week-old pit bull was reportedly stolen from the front yard of a residence in the 700 block of North Lincoln Avenue near Louie Avenue.
The owner was inside the house when someone picked up the puppy, put her in an older tan truck and drove away, according to Esther Molina, mother of the 18-year-old owner.
Molina said she called Lodi police, but she was told that officers couldn't help her because they didn't get the truck's license plate number.
The dog, named Mamas, is white with gray and white spots, Molina said. She didn't have her collar on at the time, so there isn't any identification.
Anyone who has seen the puppy may call Molina at 808-8532.
