A collision involving a motorcycle and a sedan resulted in severe injuries to the motorcyclist. The motorcycle crash in Ramona occurred on the afternoon of Friday, April 30.
According to the details shared by the California Highway Patrol, the motorcyclist was traveling along a rural road in San Diego County at the time. This road was identified as the Third Street in Ramona. The motorcycle was headed southbound on the road. The second vehicle involved in the crash was in the oncoming lane, traveling northbound. It was a 2017 Toyota Corolla.
As both vehicles drew close to the D Street, the driver of the Corolla took a left turn. This brought the vehicle directly into the path of the motorcycle. The bike, which was identified as a 2013 Triumph, collided with the sedan at a high rate of speed. The impact of the collision was on the passenger side of the car.
The sheer impact of the collision caused the motorcyclist to be ejected from the bike and onto the roadway. The biker sustained severe injuries in the incident. Once the first responders and paramedics arrived on the scene of the accident, the injured man was airlifted to the Palomar Medical Center.
The driver of the sedan remained uninjured in the incident. She was identified by the police as a teen girl aged 17.
CHP continues to investigate the incident. The focus of the investigations, at this point, is to determine how the motorcycle crash in Ramona occurred and who the negligent party was. Preliminary investigations have revealed that the teen driver of the sedan was not impaired by alcohol or drugs when the crash occurred. It remains to be seen if speeding was a major contributing factor.
