Rider Hurt in San Diego Motorcycle Crash With Driver
SAN DIEGO, CA (July 26, 2019) – A motorcyclist suffered injuries in Wednesday’s motorcycle accident on Towne Centre Drive, near Nobel Drive.
According to San Diego police Officer Robert Heims, the incident happened around 4:25 p.m. A 58-year-old man operating a 2016 Harley-Davidson southbound along Towne Center Drive collided with a southbound 2011 Lexus sedan.
Heims reported that the driver of the Lexus attempted a U-turn from the right lane and crossed into the path of the oncoming rider.
Following the accident, the 58-year-old man was brought to a nearby hospital with a fractured pelvis and leg.
Meanwhile, the 24-year-old woman remained at the scene and cooperated with police investigators. Alcohol and drugs do not appear to be factors contributing to the crash.
