Coroner IDs Livermore motorcyclist killed on I-580 last weekend

CHP: 21-year-old was lane-splitting during downpour

A man who was killed last Sunday afternoon when he lost control of his motorcycle while riding in heavy rain on Interstate 580 east of Livermore has been identified by the Alameda County coroner as 21-year-old Cristo Garcia of Livermore.

According to California Highway Patrol Officer Tyler Hahn, witnesses said that Garcia was driving at high speeds and splitting lanes just before he lost control of his 2018 Harley Davidson between Livermore and Tracy on I-580 a mile west of the Grant Line Road exit at about 1:05 p.m. on Sunday.

Hahn said a man driving a 2017 Jeep Wrangler struck Garcia after he was on the ground. Garcia was pronounced dead at the scene.

I feel absolutely horrible for the family. But this is a textbook example of a complete moron. "According to California Highway Patrol Officer Tyler Hahn, witnesses said that Garcia was driving at high speeds and splitting lanes just before he lost control of his 2018 Harley Davidson between Livermore and Tracy on I-580 a mile west of the Grant Line Road exit at about 1:05 p.m. on Sunday."

And for the record, I ride a motorcycle. But while using my brain.
