SANTA CRUZ -- Alan Yelensky, a 71-year-old from Los Gatos, died Jan. 15 in a motorcycle crash on Granite Creek Road in the Santa Cruz Mountains, according to the Santa Cruz County Sheriff's Office.
Yelensky was riding a Zero electric motorcycle north on Granite Creek near Blair Ranch Road about 1 p.m., according to the California Highway Patrol. He collided with a Ford F-250 that was headed south and fell about 15 feet down a hill, said CHP officer Leland Adkins.
Yelensky, who was wearing a helmet, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Adkins said last week that the cause of the crash is being investigated.
