Motorcyclist Suffers Major Arm Injury in Los Gatos Hit-and-Run on Highway 85

LOS GATOS (August 15, 2017)- According to the San Jose Mercury News, a motorcyclist suffered a gruesome injury Monday at the hands of a hit-and-run motorist who caused two other non-injury hi-and-run collisions.

The first incident occurred right around 3:00 p.m. when a man riding a motorcycle was struck from the rear on southbound Highway 85 to the entrance to southbound Highway 17 by a woman ID’ed as Laura Elizabeth Starr, 39, of Los Gatos. The contact from behind caused the unidentified rider to lose control and fall onto the road.

The man incurred a significant injury to his arm in which he was rushed to a medical center for immediate surgery.

The suspect, Ms. Starr, proceeded to flee the scene after hitting and injuring the man eventually striking two other drivers while en route to her home in which neither of the drivers was hurt, per the San Jose Mercury News.

Authorities were able to get a lead and find Starr at her residence where she was arrested for both hit-and-run and driving while under the influence.

The condition of the motorcyclist has not yet been updated while CHP officials are still looking into other factors regarding this incident.

It is expected for any motorist to stop and remain at the scene after being involved in a crash. Regardless of their reasons, fleeing the area is a serious crime and punishable by law, especially if the collision led to the injury of another individual.

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.
