SAN DIEGO — A 57-year-old motorcyclist suffered life-threatening injuries Friday when a car ran a red light and struck his motorcycle in the Grantville section of San Diego.
The collision was reported about 5:45 p.m. at the intersection of Rancho Mission and Friars roads, according to San Diego Police Department Officer Robert Heims.
The rider, who was aboard a 2014 Honda CTX, was headed north in the 6300 block of Rancho Mission Road and entered the intersection of Friars Road on a green light to turn left onto the 10000 block of Friars Road, when the Honda was struck by a 2002 BMW Z3, Heims said.
“The BMW entered the intersection against a red light and hit the motorcycle,” Heims said. “The rider was separated from his motorcycle and sustained life-threatening injuries.”
The man was taken to a hospital and the SDPD Traffic Division is investigating the collision, Heims said.
