An Oceanside man was killed when the motorcycle he was riding collided with another vehicle and he became pinned underneath it, according to police.
The crash happened shortly after 4 p.m. Friday at the intersection of Cassidy Street and Broadway Street, Sgt. Rick Davis said.
Michael Bisone, 52, was riding a 2008 Kawasaki motorcycle heading eastbound on Cassidy Street at what witnesses described as a high rate of speed, when he struck a 1964 Ford that was heading northbound on Broadway Street and had pulled out from a stop sign, Davis said.
Oceanside police officers who were first on scene began performing life- saving measures on Bisone before paramedics arrived. Bisone was taken by ambulance to Tri-City Medical Center where died, according to Davis.
The driver of the Ford was interviewed on scene and released. Based on the initial investigation, it was unknown if alcohol was a factor in the collision. It appears that speed may have been, Davis said.
