21-year-old killed in Brentwood motorcycle crash

BRENTWOOD (KRON) —   Monday morning Brentwood authorities identified a motorcyclist who was killed in a crash near Brentwood early Sunday morning as 21-year-old Clayton resident Marcus Angelo Muskat.

According to officials Muskat was traveling east on Marsh Creek Road, west of Morgan Territory Road, when he veered off the roadway shortly before 1:30 a.m. Sunday, according to the California Highway Patrol and the Contra Costa County coroner’s office.

CHP officials said it’s unclear how fast Muskat was driving his 2003 Suzuki GSX-R759 or why he crashed.

Muskat was ejected from the motorcycle after striking a posted road sign and died from the injuries he suffered in the crash, CHP officials said.

At this time it’s unknown if alcohol or drugs played a part in the crash.

Authorities are still investigating the crash and are asking any witnesses to the collision to call the CHP at (925) 646-4980.
