SAN DIEGO — A dirt bike rider was killed Thursday after colliding with a vehicle in University City, said the San Diego Police Department.
Around 8:16 p.m., a 31-year-old man was riding a 2018 KTM eastbound on Governor Drive at a high rate of speed with no lights on, police said. The area was reported to be extremely dark.
At that same time, authorities said a 66-year-old woman was driving a silver 2005 Lexus SUV westbound on Governor Drive. The woman reportedly did not see any eastbound traffic and made a left turn onto Erlanger Street in front of the dirt bike.
The dirt bike struck the Lexus, ejecting the rider. SDPD said the man was transported to a local hospital where he later died of his injuries.
Alcohol was not determined to be a factor in this collision.
SDPD’s Traffic Division is investigating. Anyone with information related to the fatal incident is encouraged to call Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477.
