A man was killed in a motorcycle accident in Livermore early this morning, police said.
An officer on patrol found the motorcyclist around 12:30 a.m. near the intersection of Murrieta Boulevard and Portola Avenue, Livermore police Sgt. Keith Graves said.
Graves said the man — later identified as 31-year-old Daniel Vanderhoofven of Livermore — is believed to have been traveling at a high rate of speed eastbound on Murrieta Boulevard when he may have lost control around a turn and collided with a sound wall.
The intersection was blocked off and should be reopened around 6 a.m., police said.
The cause of the accident is still under investigation.
