A 22-year-old motorcyclist was killed Thursday evening when he was hit by car in Castro Valley, a California Highway Patrol officer said.

The crash was reported at 6:22 p.m. after an accident between a Honda Pilot and a Harley Davidson motorcycle at Parsons and Wilson avenues, CHP Officer Richard Diamond said.

Justin Barnes, 22, was riding his motorcycle northbound on Parsons Avenue, approaching Wilson Avenue when a man in a 2004 Honda Pilot turned left onto Wilson Avenue from southbound Parsons Avenue, Diamond said.

The Honda hit the motorcycle, which sent Barnes into a parked car on Parsons and he was ejected from the bike.

Barnes was taken to Eden Valley Hospital in Castro Valley, where he was pronounced dead, the officer said.

The cause of the crash is under investigation. Anyone with information about the crash is asked to call the CHP at (510) 581-9028.

@ Greg: If you go to the CHP web site regarding motorcycle safety, you will realize that in order to be thrown as far as Mr Barnes had traveled from impact, he would have been traveling over 49 miles an hour in a residential street. Parsons rises and does not level off until 100 feet before Wilson. If he had looked back over his shoulder, he would not have seen the vehicle. No skid marks. Negligence is on Barnes as well. I can't see how the DA should even get involved. Bikers are at times just as guilty from not being careful. It is sad that a young 22 year old man lost his life. But confidence kills as many bikers as cars.
