A man riding a 2010 Yamaha R6 motorcycle died Saturday in a crash on northbound Interstate 5 near Camp Pendleton.

The crash happened at 4 p.m. Saturday near Las Pulgas Canyon Road. The California Highway Patrol said the rider veered to the left, ran off the roadway, and hit a metal fence in the center median.

Another vehicle may have been involved in the fatal crash. Witnesses told officers a blue sedan was in the median and continued on after the motorcycle went down.

The two left lanes of the freeway were closed until approximately 9:30 p.m. as the scene was investigated.

The  incident remains under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact the CHP Oceanside office at (760) 643-3400.
