Accident on Mission Bay Drive Left One Seriously Injured

SAN DIEGO, CA (May 20, 2022) – A motorcycle crash on Mission Bay Drive ejected and injured one rider on Monday, authorities said.

According to the police, the crash happened shortly after 3:13 p.m. in the 4200 block of Mission Bay Drive.

At this time, it remains unclear what made the 72-year-old driver of a 2011 Chevrolet Impala make the turn starting in a parked position from the west curb of the road.

As a result, the Impala collided with a 50-year-old riding a 2003 Honda Magna, ejecting them from their motorcycle.

Paramedics arrived at the scene and transported the rider to a hospital after suffering a collapsed lung and several rib fractures.

Meanwhile, the driver of the Impala remained uninjured. San Diego Officials are working to identify the circumstances surrounding the motorcycle crash.

Motorcyclists rarely escape injury when an accident occurs. It is important to never underestimate the bike’s speed when you’re riding a motorcycle. Additionally, strictly follow traffic laws and the conditions of the road. For other drivers, do not tailgate a motorcyclist and maintain a safe following distance. Give motorcyclists a full traffic lane when you pass, as they too have equal rights on the road.
