San Jose man dies in motorcycle crash on Hwy 101

A 33-year-old male motorcyclist from San Jose died after crashing his bike and being run over by a vehicle on northbound US Highway 101 in San Jose early Saturday morning, according to the California Highway Patrol.

CHP officials said the motorcyclist was first spotted speeding past CHP officers on northbound Highway 101 near Old Oakland Road at about 12:20 a.m.

Officers then saw the motorcycle down in the road and the rider in the northbound lanes, along with some debris, near East Brokaw Road, the CHP said.

CHP officers saw a female, later identified as the passenger of the motorcycle, 23-year-old San Jose resident Nyisha Coleman, walking towards the center divider, the CHP said.

Officers parked their patrol vehicle in the center divider and activated their emergency lights to warn approaching traffic.

However, as the officers went to render medical aid to the man down in the roadway, the driver of a Ford Mustang struck the motorcyclist, according to the CHP.

Officers called for emergency crews and a Sig-alert was issued for all lanes at 12:28 a.m., the CHP said.

Emergency personnel arrived at the scene and transported the motorcyclist to Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, where he was pronounced deceased, CHP officers said.

The passenger of the motorcycle was transported to Regional Medical Center of San Jose with moderate injuries.

The preliminary investigation suggests that the motorcyclist was speeding when he collided with the back of a vehicle. The impact caused the motorcycle to overturn and eject the driver and passenger onto the roadway, the CHP said.

The driver of that vehicle pulled off to the shoulder and cooperated with the investigation.

Moments later, the Ford Mustang collided with the rider. The driver of that vehicle also pulled over to the center median and cooperated with the investigation, the CHP said.

The identification of the deceased rider has not yet been released and it has not been determined whether alcohol or drugs were a factor in the collision.

The roadway reopened shortly after 2 a.m., according to the CHP.

Vintage cars gather for hot-rod cruise in Marin

Revving engines signaled the sounds of history rolling into town Friday as more than 150 classic cars, some from as far away as Oregon, rolled into Novato for the Nostalgia Days Hot Rod Cruise this weekend.

They gathered in a parking lot in a colorful array of paint jobs and flashing lots of chrome. Members of the group Tribute Team American Graffiti brought their replicas of cars seen in the classic George Lucas film that captured the life of teenagers and the cruising culture of 1962.

Ken Crawford, one of the members said the first time he saw the film it hit home.

"That's what we did. We climbed in our cars, we shined them on Saturday and we went chasing girls. Heaven knows what would happen if we ever caught up with them," Crawford said.

More than 150 engines roared, lining up and then rolling into town past smiling spectators.

"The show itself brings in over 10,000 people through the streets all day long, this as you can tell brought quite a crowd out," said Marvin Giambastian, Chairman of the 18th Annual Nostalgia Days celebration.

The parade of horsepower is also a display of love, each car a work of art by owners of all ages.

Tony Rossi, 16 is just old enough to drive and his first car is a 1927 Model T Ford hot rod.

"My dad and I restored it. it took us 3 years. I paid my dad off so I could buy the car," Rossi told KTVU.

Bill Olivo of Novato has had his car for 55 years and it's been a lifetime love affair.

"This is a 54 Olds Super 88 and I got 88-thousand miles on it now," Olivo told KTVU.

He got it when he was 15 years old and put in the Mustang seats, a record player, and shiny chrome under the hood.

"Four horns. Depends on the kind of girl walking down the street," Olivo joked.

The classic cars this weekend aren't just about getting from A to B. They're about the journey, a life's history on wheels.

"As I'm getting older I thought I would lose a little bit of an interest. But as soon as I sit inside of it. I brings back you and your machine. it brings you back in time. It brings you back in time that only I could experience for myself," Olivo told KTVU. "Put every penny I ever made into it and I'm proud of it."

Nostalgia Days continues Saturday with American Graffiti actor Candy Clark making an appearance. The classic car parade begins at 4 p.m. More information on the event is available on the official website.
