July 20, 2018 (Spring Valley) – A 48-year-old man from National City died of injuries sustained today in a motorcycle crash on Jamacha Road, just east of Osage Lane.

The motorcyclist was driving a blue 2018 Harley Davidson Sportster westbound on Jamacha at a high speed and failed to slow down into a curve, causing the vehicle to strike a concrete curb, says California Highway Patrol’s Public Information Officer Travis Garrow. The out-of-control vehicle then went up an embankment, ejecting the rider.

Fire personnel responded to the collision and transported the rider to Mercy Hospital in San Diego. 

“Unfortunately, due to the major injuries sustained, the rider was pronounced deceased upon arrival to the hospital,” said Officer Garrow.  The investigation is ongoing.  However, at this time it is unknown if drugs or alcohol are a factor in this collision.
