Police have identified the person who died in a fatal motorcycle accident in West Haven yesterday as 50-year-old Michael Cavallaro of East Avenue.

According to police, Cavallaro of East Avenue was driving eastbound near 278 Main Street when an SUV pulled out of a driveway and struck Cavallaro's motorcycle.

It happened around 3:30 p.m. Saturday near the intersection of Main Street and Washington Avenue, police said.

Cavallaro was fatally injured and declared dead at the scene, according to police.

Residents in the neighborhood said traffic is a concern in the area.

"People are speeding down this street constantly. I often have to suggest they slow down. This is just a residential area and people treat it like a thruway," said Laurie Rodia.

Police are still investigating. Anyone with information is asked to contact the West Haven police Department Major Accident Unit at 203-937-3925.
