Motorcyclist killed in Highway 35 crash

A motorcyclist was killed in a head-on crash on state Highway 35 in unincorporated San Mateo County south of Portola Valley on Thursday afternoon, a California Highway Patrol officer said.

The crash was reported at 1:45 p.m. on Highway 35 about a quarter-mile south of Alpine Road, CHP Officer Amelia Jack said.

The male motorcyclist, whose name was not immediately available, was traveling south on the highway when he apparently crossed into the northbound lanes and struck an Acura head-on, Jack said. He was ejected from the motorcycle and was pronounced dead at the scene, according to Jack.

She said it doesn’t appear drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash. The highway was blocked for hours as officials investigated the crash.
