    A 63-year-old motorcyclist was killed in a crash in San Jose this  morning, police said.

    The crash occurred around 8:20 a.m. on northbound Almaden  Expressway and Branham Lane, Officer Jose Garcia said.

    The motorcyclist was riding a Harley Davidson behind a white  pickup truck in the No. 3 lane just before the crash happened, Garcia said.

     As the truck slowed down and started to turn right into the  parking lot of a business, the motorcyclist swerved to the right of the  truck, lost control and drove through a wooden fence and into a curb, Garcia  said.

    He was pronounced dead at the scene, Garcia said.

    The driver of the truck, a 47-year-old San Jose man, was not cited  and did not appear to be under the influence of alcohol, Garcia said. He was  not injured in the crash.

    Northbound Almaden Expressway north of Branham Lane will be closed  until about 12:15 p.m., Garcia said.
