OCEANSIDE, Calif. (August 10, 2023) — A 29-year-old man was killed Tuesday in an Oceanside motorcycle accident involving a car on the State Route 78 on ramp to the Interstate 5 Freeway.

The deadly crash occurred around 11 p.m. on August 8th, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The man was riding his 2012 Harley Davidson motorcycle along the westbound State Route 78 transition ramp heading to the northbound Interstate 5 Freeway, according to the Times of San Diego.

The rider went down in traffic lanes and shortly after was hit by a driver in a Mitsubishi Outlander.

The 69-year-old San Diego man driving the Outlander stopped his vehicle and someone called 911 for help.

The driver of the Mitsubishi cooperated with the investigation into what happened.
