ESCONDIDO (CNS) - A motorcyclist died when he crashed into the side of a mountain then careened across State Route 78 before going off the highway.

It happened at 3:40 p.m. Sunday in the 18000 block of San Pasqual Road, San Diego Police officer Dino Delimitros said.

"A 60-year-old man on a motorcycle lost control, hit the side of a mountain and bounced off of it, then went across lanes of traffic ending up on the other side of the road in a field of cactus," Delimitrol said. "He died on the scene."

A SigAlert was issued for a couple of hours following the fatal crash closing State Route 78 between West Haverford Road and Bandy Canyon Road.
