BAY POINT — A 20-year-old Pleasant Hill man was killed in a motorcycle accident early this morning on westbound Highway 4, just east of Bailey Road, in Bay Point.

The victim was Kraig Foster, according to the coroner's office. An autopsy will be performed Monday.

The motorcyclist veered off the road about 5:05 a.m., collided with a concrete sound wall and landed in the right-hand lane of the freeway.

"He was thrown ahead of the bike and we believe the bike ran over him," said Officer Mike Wright.

Foster was pronounced dead by emergency paramedics, Wright said. He was wearing a helmet that was fastened improperly, Wright added.

There were no known witnesses. Officers are seeking information from the public regarding the accident, which blocked two lanes of Highway 4 for about three hours.

Anyone with information is asked to call 925-646-4980 or 1-800-TELL-CHP.
