Buena Park police identified a motorcyclist Wednesday who died after a high-speed crash as 21-year-old Miguel Gonzalez of Whittier.

Gonzales died Tuesday afternoon after his Kawasaki Ninja sideswiped a passenger vehicle on Beach Boulevard in front of the  Medieval Times restaurant.

He was knocked off his motorcycle and struck an oncoming vehicle. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The occupants of the other vehicles involved were not hurt.

Kohanek said witnesses reported seeing the motorcycle traveling at more than 100 mph shortly before the crash.
