Man Killed in Motorcycle Crash Identified

An early investigation suggests the man was thrown from his bike.


A 27-year-old man who was killed in a motorcycle crash in San Francisco on Saturday has been identified as Michael Butler, of San Bruno, according to the San Francisco medical examiner's office.

The CHP first received a report of a motorcyclist hitting the center divide of Highway 101 at 1:10 a.m., CHP officials said.

Traffic proceeded slowly past the collision before the CHP shut down the on-ramps at Van Ness Avenue and at Octavia Boulevard for about 90 minutes during the investigation.

The investigation indicated that Butler struck a catwalk on the east side of the freeway and was thrown from the motorcycle. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
