SAN DIEGO–A 22-year-old male was killed when his motorcycle collided into the rear of a vehicle on Interstate 8, a California Highway Patrol spokesman said Thursday
The man was driving a dark colored 2008 sport type Suzuki motorcycle eastbound on Interstate 8, east of Mission Center Road at a high rate of speed.
At the same time, a 53-year-old female from Chula Vista was driving her Hyundai sedan on Interstate 8, eastbound in the far right lane and had just entered the freeway from Mission Center Road.
