SAN DIEGO — A 32-year-old motorcyclist died shortly after he T-boned a car in North Park early Friday and police were looking for the car’s driver, who fled the scene.
A 31-year-old man who was riding as a passenger on the motorcycle was also taken to a hospital for scrapes, bruises and complaints about chest and leg pain, Stafford said.
Police were looking for a white four-door car, possibly a Cadillac, driven by a male.
“We’ve broadcast citywide for the vehicle or any vehicle that with damage. The damage appears to be on the driver’s side front end of the vehicle,” Stafford said. “We don’t have any suspect description of the driver of the Cadillac.”
Stafford said the car and the motorcycle were traveling in opposite directions on University Avenue when the car made a turn onto Granada Avenue and was struck by the motorcycle. The car continued south on Granada after the crash, witnesses said.
Police closed off University Avenue for about four hours while they gathered evidence and interviewed witnesses.
