SACRAMENTO — Two people died Sunday after they were thrown from a motorcycle along state Route 244.

A man and his female passenger were traveling eastbound on state Route 244 around 2:01 a.m. when they sped through the intersection of Auburn Boulevard, according to the Sacramento Police Department. The two have been identified as Bobby Potts and Cathrin Nevin, both of Olivehurst.

The two quickly came upon a Heritage Oaks Hospital parking lot where the roadway dead ends and the driver tried to stop, locking up his brakes. The motorcycle skidded into a tree and the pair were thrown from the motorcycle.

Hospital staff and officers tried to save the Potts and Nevin, but both were pronounced dead at the scene of the crash.

It is unknown if alcohol or drugs played a role in the deadly crash.
