Authorities have released the name of the man who was killed in a motorcycle crash last weekend while driving along Highway 1 north of Santa Cruz.

Christian Keller, 62, of Los Gatos, was heading southbound (towards the city) around 2pm Saturday when, for reasons that weren’t immediately clear, his 2008 Victory Vision collided with a 2003 Toyota Tundra near Dimeo Lane, Saturday, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Keller was pronounced dead by medical personnel.

The driver and passenger of the Toyota weren’t injured.

Drugs and alcohol didn’t appear to be a factor in the collision.
