A man in his early 20s was riding a motorcycle east on Judah Street at about 1:40 a.m., when he struck a center median at 39th Avenue and flipped over, San Francisco police spokesman Albie Esparza said. (As those familiar with the area know, there’s not a median at 39th — there is one, however, at 40th. I called SFPD to confirm where the accident took place, and will update when they respond — EB)

The victim slid under a parked car and was pronounced dead by fire department paramedics who responded to the crash, Esparza said.

It has not been determined if drugs or alcohol were factors in the crash.
The incident remains under investigation.
