Motorcycle safety tips from the CHP
A motorcyclist died Monday night after crashing into a parked car near 4th Avenue and 42nd Street.
Medical personnel responded to 911 calls at around 11:45 a.m. Monday to find a young man dead in the roadway, according to Sacramento Police Department call sheets.
The Sacramento County Coroner’s Office later identified the motorcyclist as 23-year-old Sacramento resident Joseph Smith.
Speed is suspected to be a factor in the crash. Streets in the surrounding area were closed off following the collision, but have since reopened.
