A motorcyclist who died in a crash with another vehicle last week on U.S. Highway 101 in Menlo Park has been identified by the San Mateo County coroner's office as 36-year-old San Jose resident Adam Wolf.

The crash was reported at about 3:50 a.m. on Dec. 28 on southbound Highway 101 just north of Willow Road.

According to the California Highway Patrol, a man driving a Honda Accord crashed and the car came to rest in a lane of the highway with its lights off. Wolf, riding a Kawasaki Ninja motorcycle, came from behind and struck the right rear passenger door of the Honda.
