CASTRO VALLEY (CBS13) — All eastbound lanes of Interstate 580 in Castro Valley have been closed after a motorcyclist was apparently run down and killed by a paratransit bus.

The California Highway Patrol said the motorcycle rider, who was described as a Hells Angels gang member, was traveling west of 150th Avenue just before 4:00 p.m. when he got into an altercation with the driver of the paratransit van.

The driver of the van is suspected of intentionally hitting the motorcyclist and dragging him for several miles underneath the van. The rider did not survive his injuries.

All eastbound lanes were closed after the incident and are expected to remain shut down until 11:00 p.m., according to the CHP.

      When it is a hells angle, a member of an organized criminal gang that deals in guns, dope and murder, it really is no loss.

    Damn the H.A. is taking a beating in California lately. Maybe their time on top has come to an end in Cali.

    other hells angels will get their revenge. the bus driver will have to look over his shoulder for the rest of his life in or out of prison.

    On westbound 580 a few years ago, I almost hit a Hells Angel in my blind spot… my bad. He got so angry that he drove his bike in front of my SUV and slammed on his brakes at 70 mph and I almost drove him down. The very stupidity of that got me laughing so hard that if he’d done it a second time, I wouldn’t have been able to save him. Apparently he figured it out too because he drove off. What’s my point? I don’t have one except I don’t think I would have drug him so far.

    I’m not involved with the Red and White, but I do ride a motorcycle!! Let’s not overlook the fact that this SOB deliberately ran down another human being and then dragged him for several miles!!

  7. Viking says:

    Newie68………..lets not overlook it is a criminal that would kill you for an initiation into a club. get real!

    regardless who it is no one should lose their life beacuse another one is mad at them if they didnt hurt anyone in your family then let it go life is too short to be mad all the time and now the driver who thinks he won or got over in the argument will have to watch that ass beacuse where he gose those angles will also be there go luck smuck bus driver

  9. don't slow down in front... says:

    I’ll bet Mr. Badass biker didn’t like something the bus did, like move over fast enough, since Hell’s Angels own the roads and we should all bow down, so he whipped in front of said bus and slowed down… obviously to prove a man on a bike is far more large and powerful than a bus.

    OOPS!

    What in the world is wrong with so many of you? How sad it is to read the heartless cruel ignorent comments being posted here. He and the others who were murdered are human beings. Men who had families who are heartbroken by their deaths. It does not matter that they were part of an M.C. that does not give you or anyone else the right to celebrate or make wise cracks about their deaths. They were Murdered they are the victims of horrible people. the end. May they find peace and you find the wisdom to keep your ugly words to yourself.

      lex-lo

      .. your uncle was a part of a group of dirt bags and snitches.
      ( you get, what you put in ) dont hate people who dislike your uncle, they are only speaking the truth about your uncles actions.. your uncle knew that his actions would catch up to him someday.. to bad it was a bus who caught him first…

    Being a motorcyclist I feel ashamed of most of you. I try to see the good in most folks,but your.calous disregard for this mans life shows a side of you that is at least equal to any wrong doing that this man might have committed in his life. You sentenced him in abstencia without proper regard for his life. I wonder which one of you have been responsible for evil deeds of your own. God said Let him without sin cast the first stone. Think about it folks which one of you have not done something that others would find objectionable in some way shape or form?

    I KNOW FOR SURE THAT IF TOU DONT GET OUT OF THEIR WAY WHEN THEY ARE ON THE HIGHWAY, THEY SLAM THE BREAKS IN FRONT OF YOU TO MAKE YOU SLOW DOWN. THIS IDIOT PROBABLY DID IT TO A BUS AND A BUS WONT STOP AS FAST AND THE IDIOT LOST HIS LIFE FOR IT. THATS WHAT HE GETS

      I know for sure that calling a hate crime victim an Idiot (in caps no less) could be an example of the pot calling the kettle . . . ! !

  14. Electricfred says:

    Harley riders are wrongly saddled with a negative stereotype. Whatever you think of the Hell’s Angels the I-580 incident was murder. It in no way an accident or “stuff happens” event. If we had real justice instead of our present revenue driven disaster, this would be prosecuted as a hate crime!
