1 Hurt in Watsonville SUV and Motorcycle Crash on Harkins Slough Road
WATSONVILLE, CA (June 21, 2021) – Saturday afternoon, a man suffered injuries in a motorcycle accident on Harkins Slough Road.
The incident happened at about 3:30 p.m., said Watsonville Police Sgt. Mike Ridgway. Reports confirmed that the man road a Suzuki motorcycle southbound on Harkins Slough Road.
Meanwhile, a male driver of a Jeep SUV was trying to turn left from Sunset Vista Drive onto Ohlone Parkway. Then, he veered into the path of the motorcyclist.
As a result, the rider crashed into the Jeep’s driver’s side. Then, the motorcyclist slid beneath the jeep.
Thus, the Watsonville firefighters extricated the motorcyclist. Afterward, a CALSTAR air ambulance transported him to an out-of-county trauma Center.
Moreover, the incident led to the closure of Harkins Slough Road for over an hour during the investigation.
At this time, the authorities continue to investigate the crash.
Weaving in and out of lanes is dangerous. Be aware of the presence of other motorists around you. Pay attention and consider small vehicles like motorcycles and bicycles, as these riders are more prone to road accidents than bigger vehicles.
