Police have identified the man killed in a motorcycle crash Sunday afternoon as 20-year-old Garet Darnall of Lincoln. 

The crash occurred at about 3:45 p.m. near the intersection of 38th Street and Pine Lake Road. Officer Erin Spilker said Darnall was heading west on Pine Lake when he collided with the rear passenger side of an eastbound Buick Enclave turning onto 38th Street.

Darnall died at the scene.

The driver of the Enclave, 41-year-old Adam Kafka, and his passengers, a 14-, 13- and 5-year-old, were not injured.  

Spilker said police are investigating whether speed was a factor in the crash.

According to the crash repot, Kafka told police when he started to turn the road was clear, then the motorcycle appeared very quickly over the hillcrest. 

Pine Lake Road was closed at the scene for several hours after the crash.
