Two people were stabbed along the freeway south of Temecula Saturday, March 22, in a confrontation among motorcyclists that might have been triggered by road rage, authorities said.

Around 6 p.m., a group of motorcyclists pulled over just north of the Border Patrol checkpoint along the northbound lanes of Interstate 15 and fought with each other, said Sgt. Kevin McDonald of the Riverside County Sheriff's Department. One man, who was stabbed repeatedly, was seriously hurt.

The injured man drove away from the scene of the fight on his motorcycle and got off the freeway at Temecula Parkway, McDonald said. He collapsed along the offramp, where he was found by officers.

He was admitted to a hospital but his injuries did not appear to be life threatening, McDonald said.

A second injured motorcyclist drove himself to a hospital for treatment of superficial stab wounds, he said.

McDonald said the injured men were not cooperating with investigators, so it was unclear what had happened.

McDonald said he could not comment on whether the incident involved motorcycle gangs.

California Highway Patrol officers responded to the initial 911 calls of a disturbance on the freeway.

Callers reported about 60 motorcyclists stopped on the freeway fighting in the lanes, said Officer Nathan Baer, a spokesman for the Temecula-area CHP office. One caller reported that members of the Mongols Motorcycle Club appeared to be involved, but officials could not confirm that report.

Baer said officers arrived on the scene quickly but the motorcyclists had already dispersed.

CHP officers found the injured motorcyclist at the Temecula Parkway exit and shut the offramp down, he said.

As of Monday, no arrests had been made.
