John Sinclair San Rafael Road Rage Crash Tamalpais Avenue, August 23Motorcyclist Injured in Crash Near San Rafael Transit Center

SAN RAFAEL (August 23, 2017) – A motorcyclist was hospitalized after being allegedly intentionally struck by a vehicle on Tamalpais Avenue near San Rafael Transit Center, according to Patch.

The accident report was posted on Thursday at 4:11 p.m. but the time when the crash occurred was not discussed.

Primary investigation on the case revealed that a gray Hyundai made a right turn against a red light, from southbound Hetherton Street onto westbound Third Street. The Hyundai driver, 44-year-old John Sinclair, then nearly struck a westbound motorcyclist on Third Street.

San Rafael Car Accident

Shortly after the incident, the two vehicles encountered again at the next intersection. Both were stopped at a traffic signal when the motorcyclist reportedly knocked on the window of the Hyundai. The two motorists then exchanged heated words until the rider slapped the right side mirror of the car.

That action apparently triggered Sinclair who subsequently backed up, turned the car towards the motorcyclist and accelerated forward into it. The impact caused significant damage to the motorcycle.

As per the article, the San Rafael Police Department responded to the scene and found the rider suffering in injuries. The victim was immediately provided medical assistance, but it was not clear if the patient was taken to a hospital or was released at the scene.

Meanwhile, officials affirmed Sinclair, of Novato, was booked into Marin County Jail on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.


Our vehicles provide the convenience of traveling from one point to another. We do not usually think of cars as weapons, but in the wrong hands, automobiles can be as deadly as guns. When an individual drives with road rage, they are effectively weaponing their car. In a civil case arising out of a road rage accident, victims may allege against the at-faulty party not only negligence but also assault and battery. If another motorist rear-ends you, or runs you off the road with a vehicle, the act may constitute battery. Road rage victims can seek for monetary compensation for losses incurred in the accident such as medical expenses, property damage, lost income, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat. Attorney James Johnson helps you be aggressive with the treatment, so the average case normally takes between two and five months. Those who have serious injuries and need surgery may take several months longer. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.

You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case. When the case is settled, our fee is a percentage, as previously agreed, of the final settlement. These fees are described in full detail in our signed contract before work begins on the case. We cover the case upfront costs including everything from copying and court filing fees to hiring experts - so all your focus can be on getting well.
