Lodi Fire Capt. Joe Hansen spent more than 25 years in the service of saving lives. However, in the cold, dark hours of May 3, there was no one present to try to save his life as he lay on a mountainous shoulder of Highway 88 — the latest victim on a stretch of highway that has killed numerous motorcyclists and harmed many more.

It was 1:30 a.m. when California Highway Patrol officers and Amador County Sheriff’s deputies were notified that a citizen had discovered a catastrophic motorcycle accident in the darkness of Highway 88, just east of Peddler’s Hill, near Bear River Reservoir. Law enforcement and firefighters raced to the scene, discovering that Hansen had already passed away from injuries to his head, chest and neck. It is unknown exactly what time Hansen crashed. The incident may have taken place sometime between 11 p.m. and 1 a.m.
