The crash occurred around 4:25 p.m. just east of San Mateo. APD says the motorcycle headed east on Menaul toward Cardenas when a Ford truck turned south at the intersection.

When the truck turned, APD says the motorcycle ran into the rear passenger-side door. The motorcyclist did wear a helmet, but he died at the scene. Police do not believe speed or alcohol were factors.
