Vehicle Struck Debris That Kills 69-Year-Old Motorcyclist Following Interstate 15 Crash

 
Escondido, CA (August 19, 2020) – A crash incident on Interstate 15 left a motorcyclist dead on Monday afternoon.
 
The fatal incident happened on August 17 around 3 p.m. on southbound Interstate 15 north of De Lago Boulevard.
 
Authorities were looking for a white sedan who reportedly struck debris, which then struck the motorcyclist.
 
California Highway Patrol Officer Mark Latulippe said the unidentified sedan left the scene immediately.
 
The motorcyclist was a 69-year-old San Diego man riding a BMW motorcycle in the carpool lane. A few lanes to the right were a white Chevrolet Cobalt and the sedan when the Cobalt runs over the debris.
 
Then, the sedan which was at the back of the Cobalt switched lanes before hitting the debris. The impact sent the debris flying, hitting the motorcyclist.

Witnesses around the area helped the rider until medical personnel arrived at the scene. Latulippe said others helped in moving the motorcycle out of the roadway.
