by Dave Boyce

A 27-year-old San Francisco man was killed Friday on Woodside Road when his motorcycle collided with a car heading out of the Menlo Country Club.

The motorcylist, identified as Sahil Cooner, was driving his Suzuki motorcyle westbound on Woodside Road at about 1:30 p.m. when it collided with the side of a four-door Lexus heading east out of the country club and making a left turn across Woodside Road, authorities said.

Mr. Cooner, who had been wearing a helmet, was pronounced dead at Stanford Hospital of blunt force trauma, Sgt. Jason Peardon of the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office told the Almanac.

Mr. Cooner had been traveling at the speed limit, Sgt. Peardon said. Driving the Lexus was a a 72-year-old man from Menlo Park. He stayed at the scene after the accident and was cooperative, deputies said. Authorities are not releasing his name pending an investigation that could determine whether or not he will be ticketed.

Deputies closed westbound Woodside Road for about two hours. "We want to make sure of what we have, that everything's correct," Sgt. Peardon said.
