Motorcyclist killed in East Palo Alto by driver fleeing police

Collision on University Avenue follows early morning pursuit

A motorcyclist died this morning in East Palo Alto after being struck by a car whose driver was fleeing from police.

East Palo Alto acting police Capt. Jeff Liu said that at about 5:25 a.m., police learned of a suspicious vehicle that didn't have its lights on. An officer tried to pull the car over but the driver accelerated away and drove the wrong way on University Avenue, Liu said.

A short time later, the car struck the motorcyclist near University Avenue and Bay Road, Liu said. Several people were detained for questioning after the crash. Liu said police would be releasing more details about the incident later this morning.
