Mountain View police investigating fatal motorcycle crash

At around 11:30 a.m., police received reports of a traffic collision on Moffett Boulevard just south of the Highway 85 overpass. The motorcycle rider, identified as a 25 year-old Gilroy man, was transported to a local hospital where he died from injuries sustained from the collision.

The driver of the car involved in the collision remained on the scene and was cooperative with investigating officers. The cause of the collision remains under investigation, but it did not appear drugs or alcohol were a factor.

Both lanes of southbound Moffett Boulevard remained closed into the afternoon as officers complete their investigation. Drivers are advised to avoid the area.
