At 6:01 p.m. on May 20, the Fremont Police Department received a report of a collision at Fremont Boulevard and Old Warm Springs Boulevard involving a Chevrolet van and a Harley Davidson Streetglide motorcycle. Upon arrival officers found that the motorcyclist had sustained major injuries.
Witness statements and physical evidence indicate that the driver of the van, Fan Jie Meng, a 63 year-old Union City resident was in the driveway of 44043 Fremont Blvd. The motorcyclist, a 54 year-old Fremont resident, was riding southbound in the right lane of Fremont Boulevard when Meng pulled into the roadway to make a left turn. The motorcyclist applied his brakes but was unable to stop and the front of the motorcycle impacted the left door of the van. The motorcyclist sustained major injuries, was transported to the San Jose Regional Trauma Center and succumbed to his injuries. Alcohol or drugs did not appear to be a factor in the collision.
Any witnesses to the collision that did not speak to an officer at the scene are requested to contact the lead investigator, Officer Aranguren at (510) 790-6800 x12510.
