A 57-year-old man riding a motorcycle was seriously injured Sunday in a two-vehicle crash in Pacific Beach.

The collision happened about 3:05 p.m. on Mission Boulevard near Opal Street, according to San Diego police Officer John Buttle.

He said the motorcycle rider was heading north on Mission Boulevard when a 43-year-old man driving a 2018 Volkswagen Atlas turned onto Mission from Opal Street. The motorcyclist drove into a turn lane to pass the Volkswagen on the left as the Volkswagen merged into the same lane to make a U-turn, Buttle said.

The motorcyclist laid his bike down and slid into the Volkswagen, Buttle said.

The motorcyclist suffered serious leg injuries and was taken to a hospital for treatment. The motorcyclist’s injuries were not life-threatening, Buttle said.

Neither alcohol nor drugs were not a factor in the crash, he said.
