59-year-old rider was from Los Altos

A motorcyclist died from injuries sustained in a crash on U.S. Highway 101 Friday night in East Palo Alto after he lost control of the bike

and hit the roadway, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The 59-year-old rider from Los Altos had been traveling on southbound Highway 101 north of University Avenue at about 7:45 p.m. when,

for reasons unknown, he lost control of the motorcycle, the CHP said.

A green 2000 Toyota Corolla, which was driven by a 32-year-old Hayward man and was traveling in the same direction, struck the bike after it

went down, the CHP said.

Menlo Park Fire personnel and American Medical Response paramedics responded to the scene and transported the rider to Stanford University

Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 8:30 p.m.

No arrests were made.

The crash remains under investigation, and it was unknown as of Saturday morning whether drugs or alcohol were a factor, the CHP said.

Anyone who may have witnessed the crash is asked to contact CHP Officer A. Galindo at 650- 369-6261.
