A 22-year-old motorcyclist was killed Monday in a collision in Otay Mesa, authorities reported.
The man was riding to the east on Siempre Viva Road shortly after 6:30 a.m. when the driver of a tractor-trailer traveling just ahead of the two-wheeler began to make a U-turn, according to San Diego police.
The motorcycle crashed broadside into the commercial vehicle, sending the rider tumbling onto the roadway, Officer Sarah Foster said.
Paramedics took the victim to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. His name was withheld pending family notification.
No other injuries were reported.
