A 22-year-old man was killed late Friday when his motorcycle struck a car on Interstate 15 in Rancho Peñasquitos, a California Highway Patrol officer said Tuesday.
The crash occurred about 11 p.m. on south I-15, south of state Route 56, said CHP Officer Jesse Matias.
The motorcyclist was identified as a resident of Shenandoah, Iowa. His name was withheld pending notification of his family.
Matias said the motorcycle rider’s Harley Davidson struck a Toyota sedan. The impact caused the rider to be thrown off the bike, and he died before he could be taken to a hospital.
The sedan was then struck by a Ford SUV, which was hit by Toyota SUV. None of the drivers were injured or appeared to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs, Matias said.
He said investigators were awaiting a toxicology report to determine whether the motorcyclist was under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
The crash closed several freeway lanes for about five hours, Matias said.
