Deadly motorcycle crash in Mission Valley

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Investigators Thursday are attempting to determine what caused the motorcycle crash that killed a 40-year-old San Diego man on state Route 163 in Mission Valley.

The victim, whose name was not released, was riding his 2012 Harley-Davidson motorcycle north on the transition ramp to eastbound Interstate 8 when he veered off the roadway for unknown reasons about 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, the California Highway Patrol determined during an initial investigation. The rider was in the right lane but crossed over the left lane and off the roadway into a dirt median.

"The rider and motorcycle both struck a metal (and) wooden barrier," the initial investigation found. "The rider sustained fatal injuries as a result."

CHP officers did not immediately know how fast the motorcycle was traveling when it crashed and were investigating what caused the rider to veer off the highway.

The transition ramp from northbound SR-163 to eastbound I-8 was closed for about an hour during the investigation.
