Martinez Man Killed in Solo Motorcycle Accident on Highway 4

Martinez Man Killed in Solo Motorcycle Accident on Highway 4

Posted By The Dunnion Law Firm || 23-Jun-2009

An 18-year-old Martinez man was killed in a solo motorcycle accident on westbound Highway 4 west of Solano Avenue at 11:30 p.m. Monday, June 22, 2009 according to the California Highway Patrol.

Joseph Scalise was pronounced dead on the scene by paramedics after his motorcycle was found near the center divider, CHP officer Peter Van Eckhardt said Tuesday. The motorcycle had apparently crashed in the center lanes and started a fire, so Contra Costa firefighters also responded along with CHP, Van Eckhardt added.

CHP officials later determined that Scalise was ejected from the motorcycle due to high speed based on witness statements.

A two-vehicle accident that happened around the same time in the same vicinity only caused property damage, according to Van Eckhardt. An autopsy will be performed today on Scalise.
