A 34-year-old motorcyclist suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries Monday in the Grantville area when his Harley-Davidson struck a pickup truck whose driver ran a red light.

The collision was reported at 2:31 p.m. in the 10500 block of San Diego Mission Road, according to the San Diego Police Department.

The rider was eastbound heading into a green light when a 26-year-old man who was northbound on Rancho Mission Road in a Ford Ranger failed to stop for a red light and proceeded into the intersection, where the Harley broadsided the Ford, police said.

The motorcyclist was taken to a hospital.

Neither alcohol nor drugs were suspected as factors in the collision, police said.
