SAN DIEGO —  A motorcyclist suffered serious injuries this morning in a crash near a Rancho Bernardo intersection, police said.

It happened shortly before 8:15 a.m. near the intersection of Rancho Bernardo Drive and Matinal Road, San Diego police Sgt. Michael Stirk said.

The motorcyclist was taken to Palomar Medical Center in Poway for treatment of a serious leg injury, which was not believed to be life- threatening, Stirk said.

Police were looking into whether the man, whose age was not immediately available, was injured in a collision with another vehicle or if he lost control of the motorcycle on his own, the sergeant said.
