SOMERSET -- A Somerset motorcyclist died Thursday after attempting to pass other vehicles on a curve and colliding head-on with a Ford van in El Dorado County.

According to witnesses, Richard Arthur Geddis, 35, was riding his 1994 Suzuki motorcycle south on Mount Aukum Road at 4:30 p.m. and driving recklessly, said California Highway Patrol Officer Sean Ricci.

Geddis turned east onto Fairplay Road and attempted to pass cars on a curve when he hit a Ford van, driven by 45-year-old Gregory Williams of Placerville. Geddis was pronounced dead at the scene, Ricci said. Williams was not hurt.
