CHP Seek Vehicle Possibly Involved In Fatal Oakland Collision

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.

Anyone who may have seen the motorcyclist just before the collision or who witnessed the collision is asked to contact the Oakland CHP office at (510) 450-3821 or (707) 551-4196.

  1. At 2 a.m. (bar closing time), it’s very likely both the Kia driver and the biker were drunk and crashed into each other. Oh, well, typical D.U.I. I’m not too unhappy with this result: at least there will be one less loud Harley disturbing the peace of the neighborhood. A silver lining, a little bit of goodness.
