The motorcyclist was traveling west on his 2003 Yamaha V approaching Sunset Cliffs Boulevard when it was struck from behind by a 1998 Chevy Astro van traveling above 100 mph. The motorcyclist died at the scene, a California Highway Patrol dispatcher said.

The driver ran from the scene, but was later located at the 4600 block of West Point Loma Boulevard and arrested by San Diego police officers. Claudia Herrera, 27, was booked at Las Colinas Detention Center on suspicion of drunken driving, hit and run and vehicular manslaughter.
Herrera is scheduled at Central Division Felony Arraignment in downtown San Diego at 1:30 p.m. Thursday, according to jail records.
