The crash happened when Santana tried to pass the SUV at Fulton Street and East Princess Street in York City, the release says.

Santana was eastbound on Princess Street when his motorcycle struck the driver's side of the SUV, which caused the bike to slide before coming to a stop in the 200 block of Fulton Street, according to the release.

The death was ruled accidental, and there will be no autopsy, according to the release. No one else was injured in the crash.
