A motorcyclist was killed in a collision with a driver early Saturday on Interstate 15 in the Bonsall area, authorities confirmed.

California Highway Patrol Officer Jim Bettencourt said the motorcyclist – identified, for now, only as a 50-year-old man from Temecula – was traveling southbound on the I-15 north of the Lilac overcrossing, just after 5:45 a.m., when a driver in a Toyota Camry collided with him.

The 20-year-old driver had been trying to change lanes, Bettencourt said.

The impact threw the victim off his motorcycle; he died at the scene.

The driver of the Toyota was not hurt. Bettencourt said the deadly crash is under investigation, but drugs or alcohol is not suspected in the collision.
