A Napa man was killed Sunday afternoon after crashing his motorcycle on a rural road in Lake County, just north of the Napa County line.

Joseph P. Kane Jr., 33, was driving a 2007 Harley-Davidson south on Butts Canyon Road about 2:30 p.m. when he veered off the road, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Kane was going around a left-hand curve at an unknown speed when his motorcycle went off the right side of the road and down an embankment, the CHP said.

Kane was thrown from his motorcycle and suffered fatal injuries. He was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics, according to CHP.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
