An early morning motorcycle crash Saturday in Squantum claimed the life of a 23-year-old Dorchester man.
The rider, identified as Carlos Soto-Mendez, age 23, of Dorchester, was taken to Boston Medical Center with critical injuries. He was pronounced deceased there that morning, according to Sgt. Karyn Barkas.
A preliminary investigation by Quincy police indicated Soto-Mendez lost control of the motorcycle and crashed into the seawall, Dougan said.
The crash remained under investigation by the department’s accident reconstruction unit as of Tuesday, Barkas stated.
