The Santa Clara County medical examiner's office Mondday identified a motorcyclist who died after crashing on state Highway 84 near La Honda on Sunday morning as 29-year-old Sundararajan Venkatesh of Menlo Park.

The crash was reported at about 10:10 a.m. on westbound Highway 84 near Entrada Way in unincorporated San Mateo County.
