Saturday May 23, 2020

     The Simi Valley Police Department has released the identity of the motorcyclist killed in what appears to be a solo vehicle crash early Saturday morning.

    Police say that shortly before 1:30 AM, 28-year-old Libu Babu Jacob of Simi Valley was eastbound on Los Angeles Avenue between Angus Avennue and Ralston Street when he failed to negotiate a turn at the "S" turn.

    They say he went off the roadway and struck a railroad crossing arm pole.

    Police say that witnesses told them Jacob was traveling at a high rate of speed before the collision.

    He was pronounced dead at the scene.

    The roadway in that area was closed down for several hours after the crash but it has since reopened.

    Simi PD is seeking help of anyone that may have witnessed what happened.
