Motorcyclist Seriously Injured in Crash on Imperial Avenue in San Diego
SAN DIEGO, Calif. (May 9, 2018) — A motorcyclist suffered serious injuries Tuesday night in a collision with a car in the 6000 block of Imperial Avenue in the O’Farrell neighborhood, according to a report by the San Diego Sheriff’s Department.
The crash took place about 5:51 p.m. near 60th Street. Police say a 20-year-old man riding a 2008 Yamaha R6 motorcycle was traveling westbound on Imperial Avenue when the traffic light turned red and he tried to beat the light. A 45-year-old woman driving a 2016 Ford Fusion southbound on 60th Street moved into the intersection to turn east on Imperial Avenue when the motorcycle broadsided her car. The rider was thrown off the bike and over her vehicle. He suffered multiple broken bones and internal injuries in the collision. It appears that the woman was not injured in the crash.
Police are heading up an investigation into the accident to confirm liability.
