On the morning of August 15, an active duty military member was killed in an Escondido motorcycle accident, according to the California Highway Patrol (CHP).
The fatal crash occurred about 7:30 a.m. on southbound Interstate 15 near State Route 78. Ryan Meyers, 31, of Temecula, was splitting lanes in traffic when a car changing lanes clipped his bike, causing him to lose control and crash into a concrete barrier. He was thrown over the side of the freeway overpass and onto North Washington Avenue roughly 36 feet below.
Meyers was taken to a hospital with serious head injuries. He was later pronounced dead.
“At this time, an investigation is underway,” said a representative of Wilshire Law Firm. “Our thoughts are with Meyers’ loved ones.”
