SAN DIEGO, Calif. (Sept. 6, 2018) — A 25-year-old motorcyclist was seriously injured Wednesday night in a car accident near 6100 Mission Gorge Road, according to the San Diego Police Department.
The crash took place about 7:42 p.m. Police say the young man was riding his 2016 Kawasaki motorcycle northbound on Mission Gorge Road when a driver in a 2008 Volvo S40 pulled out of an El Polo Loco restaurant parking lot in front of the bike. The driver was attempting to make a left turn onto southbound Mission Gorge Road, but the two vehicles collided. The rider suffered major injuries including a fractured radius, fractured femur and other injuries. Paramedics took him to a hospital where he is expected to survive.
Meanwhile, the 68-year-old driver of the Volvo stopped and cooperated with the police investigation. It doesn’t appear that any charges have been filed at this point.
