One of our servicemen has been killed in a motorcycle crash on the Interstate-15 near the ramp for the Interstate-8, according to the California Highway Patrol.
Robert Michael Campbell of El Cajon was riding his Suzuki when he rear-ended an Acura slowing for traffic.
According to the Medical Examiner's Office, Campbell was taken to the hospital, but succumbed to his injuries in the Emergency Room.
Campbell is survived by his wife. No details as to his position in the military were released.
Often times during approaching traffic, the abrupt slowing of vehicles can cause huge issues for motorcycle riders who are caught off-guard. Being forced to split their attention amongst so many different tasks, the unpredictability of road conditions can leave riders heading into unavoidable situations. Our deepest condolences go out to the fallen rider, his wife and all those whom will be affected by this accident. Please stay safe on the roadways riders.
