A bicycle rider was taken to the hospital after he crashed and struck his head on the pavement Thursday morning in San Marcos.
San Diego County Sheriff’s (SDSO) deputies responded to reports of a person down in the roadway in the 2800 block of S. Santa Fe Road at around 8:30 a.m. and arrived to find a 66-year-old biker seriously injured.
San Marcos Fire Department paramedics transported the man to Palomar Hospital where he was treated for serious, non-life threatening injuries.
The rider was wearing a helmet during the crash, and witnesses at the scene confirmed that there were no other vehicles involved, the SDSO said.
