DESERT CENTER, California (April 4, 2014) – A motorcyclist was injured Friday morning in a collision with another driver on the eastbound interstate 10 Freeway between Eagle Mountain and Desert Center Rice roads, according to a dispatch by the California Highway Patrol.
About 8:03 a.m., CHP officers reported the collision and witnesses told them that at least one of the drivers was reckless driving prior to the accident, the report said.
Police temporarily closed down the roadway to permit the landing of a Medevac air ambulance to take the injured motorcycle rider to a nearby hospital for treatment of undisclosed injuries sustained in the crash.
Desert Center is located in Riverside County between the cities of Indio and Blythe.
“Traveling our busy Southern California freeways on a motorcycle is always a risky endeavor with so many motorists,” said Attorney James Johnson. “Police will investigate this Riverside Motorcycle Accident to determine liability. Hopefully this rider has a full recovery.”
