Motorcyclist killed near Woodside identified by coroner

A man who was killed riding his motorcycle Sept. 27 through a county park near Woodside has been identified as Stewart Sutter, 32, of San Mateo, according to the San Mateo County coroner's office.

The California Highway Patrol reported he was speeding north on Kings Mountain Road, north of Huddart Park Road in Huddart County Park, around 7:56 p.m. when he apparently lost control of his motorcycle when trying to slow down.

He braked hard, and the motorcycle left the roadway and traveled up a sloped shoulder. The rider and motorcycle were launched into the air and collided with a tree. He was then ejected from the motorcycle and landed in the roadway, officials said.

He suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene, the CHP said.

On a Facebook page that was made by Motion Pro Inc. staff where Mr. Sutter appears to have worked as a motorcycle specialist, an online memorial has been set up, with pictures and prayers for his family and friends.

"It was easy to tell when he was around because laughter and merriment would soon follow ... he will be greatly missed by all here, and never forgotten," staff at the San Carlos-based company wrote.

The CHP asks any witnesses to contact CHP Officer W. Torr at (650) 369-6261.
