A motorcyclist from Alamo crashed and died Monday afternoon on the Bay Bridge, California Highway Patrol officials said.

According to the CHP and the San Francisco medical examiner's office, 58-year-old Alamo man Robert Peng was pronounced dead at 2:02 p.m.

Andrews said the CHP doesn't know yet why Peng crashed. No debris was on the road and no other vehicles were in the area, Andrews said.
