A motorcyclist apparently driving the wrong way on a Lake Elsinore highway was killed Sunday in a head-on collision with an SUV.
The crash was reported just before 10 a.m. on the westbound State Route 74 at Tenaja Truck Trail, about 10 minutes west of the Candy Store, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The motorcycle was heading east on the westbound side of the two-lane highway when it collided with a westbound SUV, according to a CHP incident log. The motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene.
The crash prompted the CHP to close the highway in both directions while authorities cleared the roadway.
