    The 32-year-old motorcyclist and his 31-year-old passenger were heading eastbound when a light-colored Cadillac heading the opposite direction turned in front of the motorcycle, San Diego police said.

    After the two vehicles collided, the car left the scene and was last seen heading south on Granada.

    Both motorcycle riders were taken to Mercy Hospital.

    The driver later died at the hospital.

    The passenger had scrapes, bruises and complained of chest and leg pain.

    The only description officers have of the suspect’s vehicle is a white, 4-door Cadillac with damage on the front driver’s side.
