CA Body Found Thursday Believed To Be Missing ‘Motorcyclist Magazine’ Writer David Gordon Johnson

CALAVERAS, CA. (THECOUNT) — A body found Thursday in a California river is that of a freelance automotive writer, David Gordon Johnson, who disappeared while taking a motorcycle on a road test.

According to the sheriff’s office in Calaveras County, Johnson, 44, was reported missing June 5 along with the motorcycle he was “reviewing” for Motorcyclist-Magazine. The motorcycle was discovered two days later at a river access point.

Johnson’s body found was in the Mokelumne River near the inlet of Lake Pardee.

The medical examiner’s office is determining a cause of death.

Johnson’s fiancée, Jaclyn Trop, told CNN affiliate KCRA earlier this month that he was last heard from when he texted a friend to say he was sitting near a creek before heading home on the Honda CB1000R he was riding for Motorcyclist magazine, reports Fox5SanDiego.

The sheriff’s office said Friday its investigation led detectives to believe that Johnson had drowned accidentally.

California Highway Patrol officers found Johnson’s motorcycle parked at a rest stop near the town of Mokelumne Hill in Calaveras County. The bike, discovered just after midnight, was found with Johnson’s helmet and gloves, KCRA reported. His phone, laptop and backpack were found close to the nearby Mokelumne River, the news station reported.

Trop said she and Johnson had spent the weekend together in Los Angeles before he returned to Northern California, making stops in Las Vegas and Mammoth.

They were out of touch for 12 hours during his trip, Trop told KCRA, but he messaged her at 2 a.m. to apologize for not reaching out, saying his cellphone had died and he was navigating tricky and icy roads after the sun went down.

“I had a great time before it got dark,” Johnson texted, according to the affiliate. “That part of the Sierra is just stupidly spectacular. Anyway, I’m so sorry I worried you. Yes, I am okay and alive, but I am WIPED.”

CA Man Luke Fitch ID’d As Weds Wrong Way Driver In ‘Intentional’ Newport Beach Horror Head-On Crash

NEWPORT BEACH, CA. (THECOUNT) — Luke Fitch of Newport Beach, CA, has been identified as the wrong-way driver in a fatal multiple-vehicle crash Wednesday morning.

Fitch, 23, was critically injured and a 65-year-old woman was killed. The suspect is said to have intentionally caused the five-car 73 Freeway crash.

According to CHP, the violent collision occurred shortly before 9 a.m. near Campus Drive and University Drive in Newport Beach.

Witnesses told CHP investigators that the man behind the wheel of a silver Mercedes-Benz station wagon reached speeds of up to 100 mph while driving against traffic shortly before the violent pileup, according to ABC7.

That motorist, who was critically injured in the incident, was later identified by authorities as 23-year-old Luke Fitch of Newport Beach. He was transported to OC Global Medical Center in Santa Ana.

A woman was pronounced dead at the scene after the white BMW sedan she was driving was hit head-on by the speeding Mercedes. Her identity was not immediately released.

“Based on the reports of him driving recklessly beforehand and the way he got on, that’s why we are looking into it as a possible intentional act,” CHP Sgt. Todd Kovaletz told ABC7. “So as far as intoxication goes, right now it’s obviously something that’s suspected, but until we can get there and interview him and talk to the hospital, it’s too early to say one way or the other.”

Three northbound lanes were closed on the 73 as an investigation and cleanup operation were conducted at the scene.
