Encinitas man killed in head-on with big rig

Authorities on Wednesday released the name of a motorcyclist from Encinitas who died when he tried to pass slower-moving traffic and collided head-on with a big rig in Temecula.

John Anderson, 62, was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash on state Route 79, south of Woodchuck Road, at 10:43 a.m. Tuesday, according to the Riverside County coroner’s office.

Anderson was headed southbound when he crossed into the northbound lane to pass slower traffic and slammed head-on into the big rig, said California Highway Patrol Officer Brad Barksdale.

A third vehicle was struck by debris from the first wreck, but no other injuries were reported, he said.
