OAKLAND (CBS SF) — The California Highway Patrol is seeking the public’s assistance in locating a vehicle that may have been involved in a fatal collision involving a motorcycle early Sunday morning on an Oakland highway.
CHP spokesman Officer Sean Wilkenfeld said a white 2016 Kia Sorento may have been involved in the incident that occurred around 2 a.m. on eastbound Interstate Highway 980 near the 27th Street on-ramp.
According to the CHP, officers arrived and found the motorcyclist, later identified as 40-year-old Rodeo resident Steven Lee, and his 2006 orange Harley-Davidson motorcycle on the shoulder of the highway, where he was pronounced dead.
Evidence found at the scene suggested the Sorento would have damage to the front right wheel area.
