Motorcyclist Hit by Big Rig Truck Near SF-Oakland Bay Bridge
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (August 3, 2018) — A motorcyclist suffered major injuries in a collision with a big rig truck and another motorist Friday morning on the westbound Interstate 80 Freeway near the entrance to the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, a California Highway Patrol report said.
The rider was struck about 7:55 a.m. and ended up underneath the big rig truck in the middle lanes of the freeway, just east of Fremont Street.
An off-duty firefighter stopped to help the injured motorcyclist. An ambulance was called and a SigAlert issued due to the Nos. 2 and 3 lanes being blocked by the accident. The rider was transported to a hospital for treatment of major injuries suffered in the accident.
Police are heading up an investigation into liability for the collision.
