A 61-year-old man riding a Harley Davidson was struck by a Mazda sedan while splitting lanes

A 61-year-old motorcyclist suffered a compound fracture to his left foot in a crash involving a vehicle Thursday afternoon in the South Bay.

The crash occurred at 2:53 p.m. on the 2100 block of southbound Coronado Avenue at Hollister Street near Interstate 5.

Traffic was stopped to let a Mazda sedan turn southbound into an apartment complex when the motorcyclist, riding a Harley Davidson, struck the car, according to the San Diego Police Department (SDPD).

The motorcyclist had been cutting lanes prior to the crash.

He suffered a fracture to his left leg and was taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries, police said. The driver of the Mazda sedan, a 27-year-old woman, was not injured.

Traffic was reduced to just one lane on Coronado Avenue in both directions between 22nd and Green Bay streets.

A Sig Alert was issued until further notice, police said.

The road closures are expected to last for several hours.
