Harley rider killed in crash identified
The San Mateo County coroner has identified a motorcyclist who died Monday afternoon in Woodside after a collision with a dump truck.
Dennis Steven Orellana, 61, was a resident of Burlingame, according to Coroner Robert Foucrault. Orellana was riding a Harley-Davidson in the vicinity of Canada Road and Olive Hill Lane around 3:15 p.m. Monday when the collision occurred. He was reportedly in the dump truck’s blind spot, according to San Mateo County sheriff’s Deputy Rebecca Rosenblatt.
The truck’s driver, a 43-year-old man from Redwood City, remained on the scene and cooperated with investigators. Drugs and alcohol were not thought to be a factor, Rosenblatt said.
