    Motorcyclist Dies in San Jose

    A motorcyclist died early Thursday morning in San Jose, and now, police said they are exploring the possibility that "excessive speed" was a factor.

    In a statement, San Jose Police Sgt. Jason Dwyer said the man, who is believed to be 38 years old, died about 1:15 a.m. in the 440 block of North First Street at Nortech Parkway. The motorcycle seems to be the only vehicle involved in the crash, Dwyer said. The motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene.

    Police said they don't know what the rider's sobriety level was at the time.

    The man's identity has not been released until the Santa Clara County Coroner can notify his family.
