A motorcyclist was seriously injured in a crash in Carlsbad Sunday, police said.

Just before 11 a.m., dispatchers were alerted to a single-motorcycle crash on Tamarack Avenue just east of Edinburgh Drive, Carlsbad police Lt. Christie Calderwood said.

Officers headed to the scene and found a man with serious injuries in the roadway, with the moderately-damaged bike nearby.

The rider, publicly identified as a 54-year-old Vista man, was taken to a nearby hospital, Calderwood said.

Police didn’t release any additional details about the man’s condition.

The roadway was closed for a time while police and emergency crews responded to the crash, but has since been reopened, Calderwood said.
