EL CAJON (CNS) - A 29-year-old motorcyclist fatally injured when he collided with a vehicle, was ejected and run over by pickup truck was identified Tuesday as an active duty sailor stationed at Naval Base San Diego, authorities said.
The man, whose name was not immediately released, was headed south shortly before 3 p.m. Sunday in the 300 block of North Mollison Avenue, between Park and Madison avenues, when he crashed into a van that turned into his path, according to the San Diego County Medical Examiner's Office and El Cajon police.
