Speeding motorcyclist killed in big rig crash on Highway 580 in Livermore

A motorcyclist who was speeding and driving recklessly on westbound Interstate Highway 580 in Livermore was killed Thursday morning in a crash involving a big rig, authorities said.

The California Highway Patrol said the crash was reported around 5:40 a.m. in the westbound lanes of Highway 580 at North Livermore Avenue. CHP spokesman Tyler Hahn said a motorcyclist was traveling at a high rate of speed between 80 and 100 mph and cutting between vehicles before being run over by the large vehicle.

“At some point the motorcyclist hit a large vehicle and went down, clipped another vehicle and went down, and was possibly run over by another truck and tractor combination,” Hahn said.

Hahn said the motorcyclist was a man in his 40s.

As of 7 a.m., four westbound lanes were closed, with only the leftmost lane open. The westbound commute on 580 appeared to be backed up via Tracy and Highway 205.
