A motorcyclist died during a pursuit early Thursday while trying to evade law enforcement near San Diego’s Corridor neighborhood.
The chase began sometime around 1:30 a.m. when the San Diego Police Department (SDPD) tried to pull over a motorcyclist for speeding, according to SDPD officer David O’Brien. Rather than yield for officers, the motorcyclist took off and a pursuit ensued.
During the chase, the motorcyclist hit a guard rail along University Avenue near Wabash Avenue and died at the scene as a result. Their name was not immediately released.
An investigation into the death impacted University Avenue from Wabash to Swift Avenues. The investigation is ongoing.
