BERKELEY -- Police are investigating a fatal collision at the intersection of Shattuck Avenue and Rose Street where a motorcyclist was hit by a car Wednesday afternoon.

Berkeley police spokeswoman Jennifer Coats said the driver of the motorcycle, a man in his early 30s, died after being taken to an area hospital. His name was not released pending notification of his family.

Coats said the female driver of the car was not injured and is cooperating with investigators. Drugs or alcohol do not appear to be a factor in the collision, she said.

Coats said investigators have not yet determined which directions the driver of the car or the motorcyclist were heading in when the collision occurred.
