Motorcyclist plunges off I-80 in S.F. 

A 38-year-old man died after crashing his motorcycle on Interstate 80 in San Francisco early this morning.

The man, a San Francisco resident whose name has not been released by the Medical Examiner’s Office, was traveling eastbound on I-80 about 3:20 a.m. when he hit the south rail of the elevated highway, just west of Seventh Street, according to California Highway Patrol spokesman Shawn Chase.

After striking the concrete wall, the man was thrown off his bike and into a fence about 70 feet to 80 feet below on Brannan Street, Chase said. The man was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Chase said CHP officials have not yet determined how fast the man was traveling at the time of the incident. No other vehicles were involved in the crash.
