A 30-year-old man died when he lost control of a motorcycle Saturday morning on westbound state Highway 84, about three miles west of state Highway 35 near Woodside, the California Highway Patrol reported.
The man, a resident of San Francisco, was speeding west on Highway 84 on a 2009 Kawasaki when he failed to negotiate a left turn, CHP officials said. The crash was reported at 11:29 a.m.
The man was ejected from the bike, which slid off the road and down a 20-foot embankment into a tree. The man slid down the same embankment and hit a different tree where he died, according to CHP officials.
Westbound Highway 84 was closed for about 30 minutes, but the light traffic was affected little.
The crash is under investigation. Any witnesses to the collision are asked to call Officer Spencer Curteman at (650) 369-6261.
