Escondido, CA (August 18, 2020) – A fatal motorcycle accident on Interstate 15 Freeway took the life of a 69-year-old man on Monday, August 17th.

According to a report published by a local news source, an initial investigation revealed that the elderly man was riding a motorcycle southbound near the intersection of Interstate 15 and Del Lago Boulevard at around 3:00 p.m. when he struck by flying debris. 

Local law enforcement officers stated that the motorcyclist was traveling in the carpool lane, with a white sedan and a Chevrolet Cobalt in the lane to his right. The driver of the Cobalt reportedly neglected to dodge an unknown object that was in the roadway and drove directly over it, causing the sedan following directly behind to strike the object as well.

After being run over by two cars, the debris flew through the air towards the rider, striking him. The force of the impact caused the man to lose control of his BMW motorcycle and unwittingly swerve into the right-hand lanes of the interstate.

Officials said that this caused the rider to collide with the rear end of the Cobalt. 

When first responders reached the crash site, they discovered that the man had been thrown from his bike.

Paramedics transported the critically injured motorcyclist to Palomar Medical Center in Escondido. He was pronounced dead a short while later. 

The name of the deceased remains unreported at this time.

Local law enforcement officers investigating this incident are working to locate and identify everyone who was involved.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.
