POWAY, Calif. – A motorcyclist who was hit and killed by a suspected drunk driver last week was publicly identified Tuesday.
According to the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office, 59-year-old Steven Lee McHenry of San Diego died from multiple blunt force trauma injuries. Sgt. Lon Nguyen with the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department said Saturday that the incident happened around 10:30 p.m. Friday in the 13800 block of Midland Road. Twenty-two-year-old Astha Rajyaguru, driving northbound in a sedan, is suspected of rear-ending McHenry, who was parked in the bike lane on the road, Nguyen said.
