Posted on 31st December 2014 at 09:12

The victim in Monday afternoon’s fatal motorcycle crash near Amboy is being identified as Cameron Kewitz, an 18 year-old from Woodland who had been attending La Center High School, and was a member of the Clark County Fire and Rescue Cadet program. Kewitz died around 3:30 Monday afternoon, as he was riding by himself in the area of the Cedar Creek Grist Mill. The Clark County Sheriff’s Office says that it looks like he may have been riding too fast for the conditions, and then was killed when his bike went off of the road. They say that there were NO signs of impairment. It’s reported that the other members of the Fire Cadet program plan to support the Kewitz family in any way that they can; officials with the La Center School District also say that they plan to have counselors available for students and staff when classes resume on Monday.
