A 20-year-old motorcyclist and his passenger were injured in a collision with a truck Friday night in the Talmadge area, the San Diego Police Department said.

The crash happened just after 10 p.m. near the entrance to a gas station on El Cajon Boulevard, near Altadena Avenue.

Police say the motorcyclist and his 21-year-old passenger were riding past a 76 gas station when they were struck by a driver in a Dodge truck that was making a left turn into the gas station lot.

The driver of the motorcycle sustained life-threatening head, chest and leg injuries in the collision. His passenger suffered a broken wrist. They were both transported to a local hospital.

The motorcyclist’s current condition is unknown.

The driver of the truck, a 28-year-old man, was not injured. Police say alcohol was not a factor in the accident.
