The San Mateo County Coroner has identified the man who died in a possible hit-and-run motorcycle crash Thursday evening in San Mateo as Hayward resident Larry Pack.
Pack, 53, was driving a Harley Davidson on the connector ramp from southbound U.S. Highway 101 to eastbound state Highway 92 shortly before 6 p.m. when the bike crashed into a concrete barrier, according to a spokesman for the California Highway Patrol.
The crash caused Pack to be ejected from the bike and propelled over the side of the ramp and into a field of mainly dirt and debris, CHP Officer Moises Escoto said.
Escoto said emergency personnel pronounced Pack dead at the crash site.
Escoto said witnesses initially said a white Jeep or similar SUV may have been part of the reason Pack crashed, but those witnesses now say the SUV was green. The witnesses said the SUV initially stopped and then left the scene on eastbound state Highway 92.
Escoto said the SUV might have damage to its right side. The collision closed the connector ramp until shortly before 8:30 p.m., snarling traffic in the area. Anyone with information about the crash
is asked to call Officer Mike Aquino at (650) 369-6261.
