At approximately 5 a.m. yesterday, Roger Oliveira was riding his motorcycle north on Tonnelle Avenue  at what was believed to be a high rate of speed, Raposo said over the phone.

A car traveling West on 10th Street traveled north onto Tonnelle Avenue and Oliveira then struck the back of the vehicle at approximately 1008 Tonnelle Ave., knocking him off the motorcycle before getting run over by a second car.

He was pronounced dead at the scene and no charges are expected at this time, though the incident remains under investigation, Raposo stated.
