Carlsbad CA— This afternoon, December 4, 2020 at 3:15 p.m. the City of Carlsbad Police Department was called to Faraday Avenue and Palmer Way due to a traffic collision.
On arrival, officers found the rider of a green Kawasaki motorcycle had been involved in a single vehicle collision. Police Officers arrived, assessed the male, and found him to be unconscious.
The preliminary investigation by the Police Department suggests that the motorcycle rider was traveling westbound on Faraday Avenue at an unknown rate of speed when he lost control and collided into a building. Investigators do not believe any other motorists were involved.
Tragically the rider, a 29-year-old male from Encinitas, died at the scene.
The preliminary investigation shows that alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the collision, but the investigation is still underway.
Faraday Avenue to Orion way was partially closed for an extended period of time as officers investigated the cause of the collision, but is now open.
