SANTA YSABEL (CNS) - A 70-year-old Ramona man was killed Friday when his motorcycle collided with a car near the Santa Ysabel Indian Reservation.
The motorcyclist was traveling at about 55 mph on southbound state Route 79 shortly after 9 a.m., when his motorcycle struck a Toyota Prius being driven eastbound on state Route 76 by Rie Tobari-Zhou, 42, of Escondido.
The motorcyclist hit the side of the Prius as Tobari-Zhou was pulling in front of him, according to California Highway Patrol Officer Mary Bailey. His name was not released by the Medical Examiner's office.
An off-duty San Diego police officer happened upon the scene shortly after the collision and performed CPR on the motorcyclist until paramedics arrived, Bailey said.
Paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene from blunt force trauma.
Tobari-Zhou suffered minor abrasions to her left hand, but was not taken to a hospital.
A 13-year-old boy from Escondido, who was a passenger in her car, received minor abrasions to his left arm but was also not hospitalized.
Another passenger in the car was a 46-year-old Escondido man who was not injured, Bailey said.
The crash caused a SigAlert to be issued for the area that was canceled shortly before noon.
