The California Highway Patrol has identified the Hollister man killed Friday while riding a motorcycle on Highway 25 as Kyle A. Weaver.

Weaver, 32, was killed Friday evening when his motorcycle struck a semi-tractor trailer on Highway 25 at Bolado Road, according to a statement from the CHP.

CHP spokesman Matt Peters has said the agency is examining who was responsible for the accident.

While riding a 2008 Kawasaki Ninja motorcycle, Weaver had been northbound on Highway 25 south of Bolado Road.

The 2000 Volvo tractor trailer was turning onto the road from the county historical park driveway and had been blocking both the northbound and southbound lanes when the motorcycle driver came around a curve and could not come to a complete stop before hitting the trailer’s rear, according to the CHP.

Peters identified the driver as Stepan Stadnik, 32, of Sacramento.

Authorities pronounced Weaver dead at the scene. Both lanes of Highway 25 were closed for about two and a half hours.
