A motorcyclist died at a trauma center after colliding with a sedan at a Chula Vista intersection. 

The Chula Vista Police Department said the crash happened at approximately 7:20 a.m. at the intersection of Telegraph Canyon Road and Medical Center Drive. 

Authorities determined that the male motorcyclist was headed eastbound on Telegraph Canyon Road when he struck the four-door sedan as the driver made a turn from northbound Medical Center Driver onto westbound Telegraph Canyon Road.

The motorcyclist was transported to Scripps Mercy trauma center, where he was pronounced dead. Investigators had not determined the cause of the collision but ruled out alcohol as a factor. 

Identifying information of the driver was withheld, pending notification of family members.
