Earlier this month, an El Cerrito man lost his life while riding his motorcycle in Oakland, California. According to reports of the accident, he was said to have been speeding and lost control of his bike.
As is often the case in single vehicle accidents, he hit the guardrail. Sadly, he was on an overpass and ended up flying off his bike and falling over the rail to his death. He passed away at the scene of the fall.
The rider had been driving with a suspended license and had been involved in prior crashes. He also had several violations on his record. These included driving without license plates and possessing marijuana in his car. There was no information about whether drugs or alcohol were involved in the fatal crash.
