A 24-year-old motorcyclist was killed in a crash Thursday night in Carlsbad, according to police.
The Carlsbad Police Department said the Justin Litwin crashed into a curb at around 9:25 p.m. on Gateway Road and El Fuerte Street.
When officers arrived, they found the badly damaged Harley Davidson resting on its side along the sidewalk. The motorcyclist was on the ground, unresponsive, and had suffered critical injuries. He died at the scene, police said.
Police believe the motorcyclist may have been going too fast, took the turn too wide and hit the curb. His name has not yet been released.
No other vehicles were involved and no one else was injured. Road closures were in effect for several hours following the accident.
Litwin resided in Oceanside.
