Motorcyclist Killed In Early-Morning Collision On I-980 In Oakland

OAKLAND (CBS SF) — The California Highway Patrol is seeking the public’s help to find anyone who may have witnessed a fatal collision involving a motorcycle Sunday morning on an Oakland highway.

The incident was reported first reported on eastbound Interstate 980, near the 27th Street on-ramp, around 2 a.m., according to CHP officials.

Upon arrival, CHP officers found male motorcyclist and his 2006 orange Harley Davidson motorcycle in the shoulder of the highway. The victim, later identified as 40-year-old Rodeo resident Steven Lee, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Although the incident was initially reported as a hit-and-run, CHP officers are working to positively determine if any other vehicles were involved in the collision.

    Thank the Lord for one less meathead motorcyclist in the Bay Area today. These things are so annoying during my commute and no regard for other drivers.
    Praise the Lord for making our lives that more pleasant.

    1. Yes, I said thank you, too. It helps a little, but there are so many other LOUD, LOUD bikers out there. Too many dumb-asz man-children determined show off their piece of sheit two-wheelers. These asphalt funerals are righeous payback for the noisy disturbances they bring to our communities. It is a good thing that the Lord calls them home.

        I doubt the Lord calls these pieces of worthless s%^t home. Instead they probably go to Biker’s Hell. However, yes one less biker is never a bad thing. I pray that we in the Bay Area are blessed with many more motorcycle fatalities in the future.

  2. Good. A piece of good news on an otherwise somber day. The world can do without this noisy piece of junk. I hate all motorcycles, but especially the super-loud Harleys and their straight pipes. This loser won’t be disturbing the peace of any neighborhood anymore. Good-bye, and good riddance.

    Amazing that there is no update on this story yet. Are the reporters sleeping?
