Motorcyclist suffers fatal injuries in San Pasqual crash

SAN PASQUAL (KUSI) — A 24-year-old man was killed when he lost control of his motorcycle in San Pasqual Sunday and struck a tree. 

The rider, who has not yet been identified, was traveling down a grade when "he took a curve too fast" and veered down a roadway, according to San Diego police Officer John Buttle.

San Diego Police Department and San Diego Fire-Rescue Department officials responded to the 18300 block of San Pasqual Valley Road just before 4 p.m. Sunday, Buttle said. Upon arrival, they found a motorcycle that had apparently lost control and the rider suffered fatal injuries as a result of the collision.

A Sig-Alert was issued for San Pasqual Valley Road near Bandy Canyon Road as SDPD conducted an investigation but all roads have since reopened. 

The rider died from his injuries. His name has not yet been released.
