Fatal motorcycle collision on Faraday Ave in Carlsbad

CARLSBAD — A 29-year-old male from Encinitas was killed on Dec. 4 after colliding with a building at the corner of Faraday Avenue and Palmer Way in Carlsbad.

Upon arrival at the scene, Carlsbad Police officers found the rider of a green Kawasaki motorcycle lying unconscious. The victim later died at the scene. Law enforcement determined no other vehicles were involved in the crash.

A preliminary investigation suggests the motorcycle rider was traveling westbound on Faraday Avenue at an unknown rate of speed when he lost control and ran into a building.  Investigators do not believe any other motorists were involved.

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.
