Rider Injured after Motorcycle Rear-Ends SUV in Redding

 
REDDING, CA (May 24, 2019) – A rear-end collision on 5 Freeway left a motorcyclist with major injuries Thursday morning. The accident occurred between Knighton Road and Riverside Drive at around 10:21 a.m. according to California Highway Patrol officer Steve Rauch.
 
Rauch said the motorcycle was lane splitting when it rear-ended a gold Jeep SUV. Lane splitting is a legal way for motorcycles to get through traffic in the state.
 
The motorcycle was going 80 mph to 100 mph. However, the speed on that stretch of the freeway is 55 mph because of an ongoing construction.
 
The unidentified motorcyclist had major injuries, while the driver of the SUV did not incur any.
 
The dispatchers initially said that a blue 2010 Dodge pickup towing a trailer was somehow involved but only the motorcycle and Jeep were involved in the accident.
 
Motorcycle riders rarely escape injury when an accident occurs. If you are riding a motorcycle, do not underestimate the bike’s speed. Also strictly the follow traffic laws and the conditions of the road. For other drivers, do not tailgate a motorcycle and maintain a safe following distance. Give motorcycles a full traffic lane when you pass and remember that they too have equal rights on the road.
