The Long Beach man crashed his bike on the 22 near the freeway construction project.

A 57-year-old motorcyclist from Long Beach who died after he crashed his bike on Route 22 near the big construction project in Seal Beach was identified Saturday by the Orange County coroner's office.

James Robinett crashed his motorcycle about noon Thursday on the westbound freeway, approaching the Los Alamitos Channel, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Robinett died at the scene, according to the coroner's office. No other vehicles were involved in the crash, according to the CHP.

The freeway segment, which links the San Diego (405) Freeway to Seventh Street in Long Beach, is being rebuilt near the crash scene.

They always say no other vehicles were involved, but you know someone made this guy crash and then just left the scene. I've lost family this way. Please watch out for Motorcycles and bicyclists when you drive. Make a point to see them.

We were passing by the accident scene just as the CHP was administering CPR. The cop was working very, very hard to keep Mr. Robinett alive. So sorry to hear he passed. God be with his familiy and loved ones.

I lived down the street from Jim for about 10 years. He was a friendly and thoughtful neighbor. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
