MISSION VALLEY, CA (September 25, 2018) – A man was killed in a motorcycle collision on Highway 163, on Tuesday morning. The deceased victim was only identified as a 54-year-old man from Escondido.
According to the California Highway Patrol, the motorcyclist was riding southbound on the highway shortly before 8:00 AM, when his 1981 Yamaha RS rear-ended a 2017 Ford F-150 pickup. The truck had slowed near Friars Road, due to heavy traffic ahead.
From the impact of the collision, the motorcycle rider was ejected from his bike and onto the roadway. There, he was struck by a 2013 BMW 328i. Responding medics transported the critically injured man to the Scripps Mercy Hospital in Hillcrest, where he later succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead by medical staff. His name was not immediately released to the public.
No other injuries were reported in the incident. Three southbound lanes were blocked off by the authorities for about ninety minutes, as cleanup and investigation took place. No additional details have been disclosed, as the investigation continues on the fatal crash.
