LODI — In­ves­ti­ga­tors with the Lodi Po­lice Depart­ment are de­ter­min­ing what caused a col­li­sion in west Lodi that left one man dead last week­end.

Of­fi­cers re­sponded to the col­li­sion at 9:12 p.m. Satur­day on Lower Sacra­mento Road, just north of Vine Street, po­lice said.

Upon ar­rival, of­fi­cers dis­cov­ered a mo­tor­cy­cle had col­lided with an­other ve­hi­cle. The mo­tor­cy­cle rider was pro­nounced dead at the scene, po­lice said.

The ve­hi­cle’s driver re­mained at the scene and co­op­er­ated with of­fi­cers, po­lice said. Of­fi­cers de­ter­mined the driver was not un­der the in­flu­ence of drugs or al­co­hol, ac­cord­ing to a post on the po­lice depart­ment's Face­book page.

The mo­tor­cy­cle rider has been iden­ti­fied as 22-year-old Sky­lar Harr, ac­cord­ing to Lodi po­lice Sgt. Steve May­nard.

No fur­ther in­for­ma­tion was avail­able at press time.

“Ev­ery­thing’s still un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion,” May­nard said.

Many peo­ple who knew Harr posted com­ments on Lodi Po­lice Depart­ment’s Face­book post about the col­li­sion.

“I will miss you so much my brother,” Lodi res­i­dent Laura We­ston said. “I love you so much. Me and mom will miss you al­ways.”

Lodi res­i­dent Sa­man­tha Wil­liams posted sim­i­lar con­do­lences, stat­ing she was heart­bro­ken and knew him since the two were chil­dren.

She also started a Go­fundme.com cam­paign seek­ing $15,000 in do­na­tions to help Harr’s fam­ily pay for fu­neral ex­penses.

“Sky­lar was loved by so many,” she wrote on Go­fundme. “With this go­fundme ac­count it is to help give him the fu­neral he de­serves and help his fam­ily out in this dif­fi­cult time. We all need to come to­gether as one and help out.
