SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A freeway in Linda Vista turned into a virtual parking lot for about 45 minutes Monday after a motorist struck a motorcyclist, sending the biker to the hospital and blanketing the roadway with debris, authorities said.

The crash on the southbound Cabrillo (163) Freeway just south of Genesee Avenue was reported at 2:17 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

Paramedics took the motorcyclist to Scripps Mercy Hospital, a San Diego fire-rescue dispatcher said. The extent of the victim's injury was not immediately reported.

All southbound traffic lanes were closed until just after 3 a.m., the CHP reported.
