Fatal accident: Motorcyclist tries to split lanes, hits pickup truck in Hayward, CHP says

A motorcyclist who was killed in a collision on Interstate Highway 880 in Hayward on Wednesday morning has been identified by the Alameda County coroner's bureau as 27-year-old Patrick Custodio of San Leandro.

The collision occurred in the No. 3 southbound lane of Highway 880 at about 6:20 a.m., California Highway Patrol spokesman Officer Manuel Leal said.

It appears that Custodio was splitting lanes when he ran into the back of a pickup truck, flew off his motorcycle and was struck by at least one vehicle, Leal said.

At least four lanes of the highway were closed until just before 9 a.m., when the scene was cleared.
   It's unclear if speed was a factor in the crash, but drugs or alcohol are not suspected, Leal said.
