CARLSBAD, Calif. (August 26, 2022) — Brad Allen Catcott, 68, of Solana Beach, died while riding a bicycle in a collision with a motorcycle rider on Carlsbad Boulevard near Carlsbad State Beach.
The deadly crash occurred about 1 p.m. on August 15th, according to the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office.
A California State Parks officer was attempting to stop the 28-year-old motorcycle rider when the crash occurred.
