A 52-year-old man riding a motorcycle died Thursday afternoon after a collision in Golden Gate Park.

The incident occurred at approximately 4:38 p.m. in the area of Crossover Drive and 25th Avenue, police said. 

Officers from Richmond Station arrived and found the motorcyclist in the roadway. SFPD spokesperson Officer Adam Lobsinger said the motorcyclist was transported to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries, and "later succumbed to his injuries."

Lobsinger added that the preliminary investigation determined that the motorcyclist struck the back of the SUV.

The driver of the SUV, who was not identified, remained on scene and cooperated with investigators, Lobsinger said. No arrest was made. Commander Raj Vaswani wrote on Twitter yesterday that traffic in the area was impacted for several hours "due to major collision investigation."

"It is unknown at this time if impairment was a factor in the collision," Lobsinger noted. The collision is being investigated by the SFPD Traffic Company and Traffic Collision Investigation Unit.
