The crash was reported around 8:35 p.m. Monday on Mission Center Road between Camino De La Reina and Hazard Center Drive, a stretch of road that crosses over the San Diego River, San Diego police Officer John Buttle said.

The man was riding a 2018 Honda CMX500 motorcycle southbound on Mission Center Road when he lost control of the motorcycle for unknown reasons, veered to the right and struck a curb and a guardrail, Buttle said.
