A 32-year-old San Francisco man was seriously injured in a Highway 1 motorcycle accident just north of Bolinas last Sunday. Bolinas is an unincorporated town of approximately 1,600 residents, 30 miles north of San Francisco.
Authorities say that the accident happened shortly before 11 a.m. on Sunday when the motorcyclist lost control of his bike while driving on a curve. The motorcyclist crossed into oncoming traffic and hit a Honda Accord driven by a Pacifica man according to CBS San Francisco.
The collision with the Accord threw the motorcyclist from his bike and caused him to hit a minivan driven by a San Anselmo woman.
This accident shares some similarities with the Golden Gate Park crash which we covered in our last post. Both motorcyclists appear to have failed to negotiate curves and then hit nearby vehicles. Unlike the man involved in the Golden Gate Park crash, the motorcyclist in the Bolinas crash is expected to survive his personal injuries however.
The motorcyclist was rushed to Walnut Creek’s John Muir Medical Center where he received treatment for a broken femur and severe cuts. The driver of the Accord also sustained a cut to one of his arms, but none of the other car occupants were injured.
