On Saturday, February 13, 2016, at approximately 1:06 a.m., Long Beach Police were dispatched to the area of the Gerald Desmond Bridge and the 710 Freeway regarding a single vehicle traffic collision, which resulted in the death of a male adult.
Arriving officers located a motorcyclist lying on eastbound Ocean Boulevard, below the transition road. Long Beach Fire Department personnel determined the driver, a 25-year-old resident of Torrance, deceased at the scene.
The preliminary investigation revealed the driver of a 2015 Harley Davidson motorcycle was traveling eastbound on the Gerald Desmond Bridge transition road to the northbound 710 Freeway. As the roadway turned from eastbound to northbound, the motorcyclist, for an unknown reason, collided with the south k-rail and was ejected from his motorcycle onto Ocean Boulevard below. No other vehicles or parties were involved in this incident.
The Los Angeles County Coroner will determine positive identification and notify next of kin.
