SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - A motorcyclist was killed in a crash on state Route 94 that led to at least two other collisions on the same highway.

Authorities said the crash happened at about 11:15 p.m. Thursday on eastbound SR-94 near Federal Blvd.

The motorcyclist was traveling on the eastbound side when the rider somehow lost control and crashed. Just after the motorcycle crash, several cars struck the downed bike and dragged pieces of it about a quarter-mile.

The crash scene caused at least two other vehicles to collide, with one of the drivers involved allegedly under the influence of drugs or alcohol, authorities said.

Authorities said the motorcyclist died at the scene.

No other injuries were reported.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
