    SAN JOSE — The motorcyclist killed in a traffic collision early Tuesday after colliding with a median divider on the road has been identified. San Jose police responded at about 1:16 a.m. to the intersection of San Tomas Expressway and Payne Avenue, according to a news release. A woman, identified as 49-year-old Kimberly Mae Rhynes Garca of San Jose, was traveling south on San Tomas Expressway and was approaching the intersection with Payne Avenue when she crashed into a curb, hitting the center median of westbound Payne Avenue. Rhynes Garca sustained life-threatening injuries and was taken to a local hospital, where she died, police said. The death marked the 15th roadway fatality of this year. Last year, 60 people died in crashes in San Jose, matching totals from 2015 and 2019. That total didn’t include a person who died in January of injuries sustained during a crash in October, because police count that death as part of this year’s number.
