SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 22-year-old motorcycle rider died in a crash early Saturday morning.
The dead man was identified as a member of the military, but his name was unavailable early Saturday. The accident in the 2700 block of Harbor Drive occurred about 1:30 a.m., San Diego police Officer David Stafford said.
According to San Diego Police, an officer was trying to "catch up to" the rider near Cesar Chavez Parkway, but the man crashed into guardrail and a sign about 30 seconds after the officer went after him, Stafford said.
It is unclear whether the pursuing officer had activated the squad car lights and siren in an attempt to pull over the rider, or if the following officer's presence was unknown to the motorcyclist.
The young man died on the spot. Police were withholding his name until his next of kin could be told. His body was being turned over to the Medical Examiner's Office.
