Motorcyclist Crashes Into Stopped Car, Dies on Mission Valley Freeway Ramp


A San Diego freeway transition ramp was closed during Thursday's commute after a motorcycle rider slammed into the back of a vehicle and died, according to California Highway Patrol.

The motorcycle rider crashed into a sedan parked on the right-hand shoulder of the transition ramp between northbound Interstate 15 to westbound Interstate 8 just after 4 p.m., CHP officer Jim Bettencourt said.

Medical crews arrived and immediately started CPR on the rider at the scene. Unfortunately, the rider did not survive and was pronounced dead, Bettencourt said.

The rider was identified Wednesday as 75-year-old Ronnie Edward Rogers.

The transition ramp was closed during the evening commute as CHP officers investigated the crash.
