EL CAJON (CNS) - Police Sunday continued to investigate the death of a man in a motorcycle crash on West Main St. west of Interstate 8.

The crash was at about 8:20 p.m. Saturday. A westbound motorcyclist hit a curb at a high rate of speed and was thrown from his vehicle into a dirt embankment, police said.

He was taken to a hospital with a broken leg and internal injuries, but later died. His name is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.
