The motorcyclist killed in a head on crash with a SUV last week was identified by the Medical Examiner's Office as Alecia C. Seaton, 27, of Caro, MI. She was stationed with the U.S. Navy in San Diego.
The crash occurred shortly before 9:35 a.m. Oct. 13 on the 79 between Coulter Ridge and KQ Ranch Road, the CHP reported. Seaton was riding a 2006 Suzuki motorcycle, northbound, lost her balance and ejected on the road directly into the path of a 2004 GMC Yukon driven by a 43-year-old male from San Diego.
The GMC attempted to avoid the downed motorcyclist by swerving to the left, but the right front tire drove over the motorcyclist, the CHP reported. She was transported to the Palomar Medical Center by Mercy Air 5 where she succumbed to her injuries. The driver of the GMC was uninjured.
No drugs or alcohol were suspected in this collision, according to CHP.
