A motorcyclist killed in a crash near state Highway 4 in Concord last week has been identified as 28-year-old Rene Umana-Barrera of Richmond, a Contra Costa County coroner’s deputy said today.
Umana-Barrera was riding his 1991 Suzuki motorcycle east on Avila Road near Willow Pass Road when he crashed into a 1991 Honda Prelude making a U-turn, according to California Highway Patrol Officer John Fransen.
Umana-Barrera was taken to John Muir Medical Center, where he died from his injuries.
Fransen said the driver of the Honda, a 20-year-old Pleasant Hill man, was uninjured.
CHP investigators are still investigating the deadly collision and the possibility that speed played a factor, Fransen said.
Anyone who witnessed the crash has been asked to call the CHP at 925-646-4980.
