A motorcycle driver died Sunday night in Lakewood when his bike ran into the back of a stalled SUV.

The fatal crash happened about 11:40 p.m. in the southbound lanes of Sheridan Boulevard just north of West Ohio Avenue, according to a Lakewood Police Department media release.

Witnesses told police a black Ford Explorer was stalled in the right lane of Sheridan when two approaching motorcycles switched from the left lane to the right to pass a slower vehicle. One of the bikes missed the SUV, but the other collided with it.

The driver, who died at the scene, has been identified as 42-year-old Jason Wood. There were no other injuries, police said.

No one was cited in the accident.
