CONCORD -- A speeding Concord motorcyclist died Thursday after he ran a red light and collided with a car at the same intersection where a girl and her father were killed while bicycling two years ago.
Concord resident Kai Phillips, 29, was going too fast and failed to stop for the red light at the intersection of Treat Boulevard and Oak Grove Road about 10:45 p.m. Thursday, Corp. Eric Olson said. Phillips' 2005 black Harley Davidson, headed north on Oak Grove, collided with a 2000 blue Nissan Sentra sedan that was making a left turn from southbound Oak Grove onto Treat, Olson said.
Phillips was motionless when police arrived and pronounced dead at the scene.
The Nissan driver, a 58-year-old Concord woman, cooperated with police, Olson said. Drugs or alcohol do not appear to be a factor, and no arrests were made.
Police are still investigating the crash, and witnesses are asked to call Concord police traffic investigator Ken Carlson at 925-603-5931.
Two years ago at the same intersection, a Concord teen lost control of an SUV and struck 41-year-old Solaiman Nuri and his 9-year-old daughter, Hadees, as they were riding bicycles on the sidewalk, killing both. The April 7, 2012, wreck happened when 17-year-old David Rosen sped down Treat Boulevard and lost control at the intersection.
Rosen, now 19, was sentenced to the maximum term of seven years, eight months in confinement in October 2012. By law, he will be released when he turns 21. Solaiman Nuri's widow, Stoorai Nuri, and other daughter, Hannah Nuri, sued Rosen and his parents for negligence and wrongful death in April. The case is pending.
