UPDATE 8:25 a.m.:
The San Mateo County coroner's office has released the name of a man killed in a motorcycle crash on state Highway 1 near Devil's Slide Tuesday afternoon.
Nicolas Eric Narag, a 31-year-old from Los Angeles, has been identified as the man killed while on his motorcycle, according to the coroner's office.
The crash involving a 1998 Yamaha motorcycle and a 2001 Toyota pickup truck was reported on Highway 1 just south of Devil's Slide near Pacifica at 2:52 p.m., according to the CHP.
Narag was killed in the accident after apparently speeding north on the highway. He was apparently unable to negotiate a turn and crashed into the roadway as his motorcycle tipped, the CHP said.
After hitting the road, he and the motorcycle slid and collided into the front of the Toyota, driven by a 43-year-old Vacaville man. The motorcycle came to a rest on the right shoulder of southbound Highway 1, while the man continued sliding before stopping on the shoulder, north of the bike.
He was killed in the crash, the CHP said.
The Toyota driver, who had been driving south, also stopped on the shoulder. He was not injured in the crash, according to the CHP.
After the crash, on Tuesday CHP Officer Kevin Bartlett said northbound traffic was shut down at Montara State Beach, and southbound traffic was stopped at Linda Mar Boulevard in Pacifica. The road reopened around 5 p.m.
