It hit the concrete curb of the median, then struck two trees in the median. The driver and his female passenger were ejected from the motorcycle

The driver, a young man, was pronounced dead at the scene. The passenger was transported to Mercy San Juan Medical Center with major injuries, Dutton said.

Both riders were wearing helmets.
