SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A motorcyclist was killed Thursday in a collision with a car at a La Playa-area intersection.
The 20-year-old man was riding to the north on Rosecrans Street at high speed and passing other vehicles on the left when a woman in a southbound Cadillac made a left turn in his path at Canon Street shortly before 2 p.m., according to San Diego police.
The Suzuki motorcycle crashed into the side of the car, ejecting the rider, SDPD Frank Cali said. The young man, whose name was withheld pending notification of his family, died at the scene.
No other injuries were reported.
Officers closed Rosecrans Street between Upshur Street and Shelter Island Drive for a time to allow for investigations and cleanup, Cali said.
