PALOMAR MOUNTAIN ---- A man was killed and a woman was seriously injured in an accident involving two motorcycles on Palomar Mountain Sunday, authorities said.
The accident was reported just before 11:40 a.m. on South Grade Road, just south of East Grade Road, the California Highway Patrol reported.
The man was traveling downhill and incorrectly negotiated a curve, sending him the road and into the path of the woman's motorcycle, which was headed in the opposite direction, CHP Sgt. Tom Greenstone said.
It was unclear if the two vehicles collided, Greenstone said.
The woman was airlifted to a local hospital with major injuries, CHP reported.
South Grade Road at East Grade was also shut down around noon, with traffic diverted to East Grade, CHP reported.
