ESCONDIDO, Calif. – A motorcyclist was killed after he collided with a van that was pulling out of a driveway south of Escondido, said the California Highway Patrol.
The CHP said the collision took place Saturday around 2:16 p.m. at the 2600 block of Mary Lane, where a 26-year-old man riding a black Honda CBR motorcycle was going northbound on Mary Lane.
At some point, the motorcyclist hit a white Nissan NV 1500 van that was pulling out of a private driveway onto Mary Lane, north of Orangewood Drive.
First responders arrived shortly after the collision and transported the 26-year-old motorcyclist to a nearby hospital, according to the CHP.
The motorcyclist later died and his identification has not been released. Authorities said they are still investigating why the 22-year-old Fallbrook man who drove the Nissan collided with the motorcyclist.
No other injuries have been reported, CHP said, and officers do not believe that alcohol or drugs were a factor in the crash.
Traffic around Mary Lane and Orangewood Drive was impacted for more than two hours.
