Christopher Jones Killed in Oakland Motorcycle Accident on Highway 24

Oakland, California – The victim of a deadly Highway 24 motorcycle crash that occurred Wednesday night in Oakland has been identified as 51-year-old Christopher Jones of Davis, according to the Alameda County Coroner’s Office.

The California Highway Patrol said a Yamaha motorcycle and a Honda Accord collided on the highway, just west of Highway 13 near the Caldecott Tunnel.

Reportedly, the motorcycle, driven by Jones, entered into the eastbound lanes of the highway from the right-hand shoulder, where he had pulled over for unknown reasons and was hit by the Honda.

The accident occurred at around 11:17 p.m. on July 29.

Jones was ejected from the motorcycle following the impact of the crash.

Authorities found Jones lying in the traffic lanes and he was declared dead at the scene.

Highway 24 was shut down for about 45 minutes to allow detectives to investigate the crash.

Alcohol and drugs were not suspected to be factors in the incident.

The crash remains under investigation. Oakland CHP officials request anyone with information regarding the accident to call 510-457-2875.
