FALLBROOK - A motorcyclist was killed in the afternoon on Monday, Nov. 19 in a freeway accident in Fallbrook.

The 46-year-old Temecula man was "splitting lanes,'' or riding between slower-moving vehicles when he crashed his two-wheeler on northbound Interstate 15 near East Mission Road shortly after 4:30 p.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

After tumbling onto the pavement, the rider was run over by a box truck, CHP public affairs Officer Mark Latulippe said.

The victim died at the scene of the accident. His name was withheld pending family notification.

No other injuries were reported.
