Authorities said on Monday that a 62-year-old man from La Mesa perished after the motorbike he was riding collided with a car in Escondido.

The county Medical Examiner’s Office reports that several blunt force injuries were the cause of Craig Arthur Jameson’s death.

According to California Highway Patrol Officer Jared Grieshaber, Jameson was riding a 2017 Yamaha FZ09 motorbike east on Highland Valley Road, east of Bandy Canyon Road, on Saturday after 11:30 a.m.

In front of the motorcyclist, a 20-year-old San Marcos man was getting out of a home driveway onto Highland Valley Road in a 2019 Toyota Camry, according to Grieshaber.

Grieshaber said, “The motorcycle rider attempted to steer right to avoid a crash but was unsuccessful, and the motorcycle crashed into the right front bumper of the Toyota.”

According to Grieshaber, the rider was ejected, and he and the bike landed north of Highland Valley Road’s northern boundary.

Paramedics took the rider to Palomar Medical Center in Escondido, where, according to Grieshaber, he passed away from his wounds. The driver of the Toyota, however, remained unharmed. Jameson wore a helmet, according to the county Medical Examiner’s Office.

Grieshaber stated that alcohol was not thought to have had a role in the collision, which is still being investigated.
