OAKLAND -- A San Pablo man who crashed a stolen dirt bike into a car Sunday afternoon in East Oakland remained hospitalized in critical condition Monday with life-threatening injuries, police said.

The name of the 32-year-old man was not released because not all of his relatives have been notified.

The collision happened about 12:51 p.m. Sunday at the intersection of 62nd and Harmon avenues.

Officer Tim Dolan said the man was riding without a helmet on a Kawasaki dirt bike stolen from a garage on Rilea Way less than an hour earlier. The man was riding southbound in the northbound lanes of 62nd Avenue and witnesses told police he was speeding, Dolan said.

The man did not stop for a stop sign at Harmon Avenue and broadsided a westbound Nissan Maxima driven by a 26-year-old Oakland man who had just pulled into the intersection from Harmon after stopping at the sign, police said.

The man was ejected from the dirt bike and landed in the roadway. The car driver was not injured.

Police are still investigating. Anyone with information about the collision may call police at 510-777-8720.
