A motorcyclist killed in a multi-vehicle crash on Interstate 8 in La Mesa was a retired U.S. marshal who was en route to work as a court security officer, the federal law enforcement agency reported Thursday.
John Brady, 65, was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash, which happened about 5:10 a.m. Wednesday on westbound I-8 east of state Route 125.
He had been on his way to his job as a court security officer at the federal courthouse in San Diego, U.S. Marshals Service spokesman Ben Walker said.
Brady joined the U.S. Marshals Service on Sept. 15, 1980, and retired on Jan. 3, 2007, Walker said.
The California Highway Patrol was investigating the circumstances of the crash.
