The accident occurred at approximately 9:30 p.m. Thursday in the 800 block of Broadway Avenue, said Lt. Stephen Kirk of the El Cajon Police Department.

Investigators believe the rider was eastbound on Broadway when the driver of a Dodge SUV traveling westbound made a left turn in front of the motorcycle, causing the motorcycle to slam into the passenger side of the SUV, Kirk said.

The driver of the SUV was arrested at the scene and the victim was taken to the hospital in serious condition, Kirk said.
