OCEANSIDE, CA (September 28, 2022) – Early in the morning on Monday in Oceanside, Nicholas Merced was struck and seriously injured as he rode his motorcycle. The September 26 crash occurred while Merced was on his way to work at Camp Pendleton where he is a military police officer.

Reports say Merced was on his motorcycle when a vehicle–which has not been described–made a turn. The vehicle and the motorcycle collided, with the motorcycle struck broadside.

Responders transported Merced by airlift to La Jolla’s Scripps Memorial Hospital.

He suffered injuries that include an open fracture to his pelvis, breaks in his arm, feet, knee, and back, reports say.

His injuries include renal failure, sepsis, a heart attack, and blood clots in his lungs; his condition has been described as critical.

Merced is 39 years old.

The driver of the vehicle has not been identified, and reports do not say if the person was hurt, nor if anyone else was in the vehicle when the crash happened.

To understand the crash, and why it happened, investigators are at work collecting details and information.
