Reported by Roger the Scanner Guy
Vehicle vs motorcycle at Cliff Drive and Mohawk. The motorcyclist was thrown 50 feet and down in the road when Engine 6 and medics arrived.
Rushed to Cottage condition Unknown.
All I have Roger over and Out.
Wonder if it was the same guy that I saw zig-zagging thru traffic zooming up the hill from Castillo........ Considered calling it in, but figured the guy would be long-gone before Police arrived in the area, and didn't see the license plate, and of course, no description of the rider.
There are comments on Noozhawk’s article on FB that indicate the rider was riding irresponsibly before the crash. I am a motorcyclist so I’d like to assume the motorist was at fault but as a responsible motorcyclist I am not a fan of those that ride recklessly. I hope the injured recovers fully and, if they were riding dangerously, learns to be more safe from now on.
Motorcyclist here as well. Hope he fully recovers. That said, he is not the first rider to go barreling over Cliff Drive. I witnessed one a few years ago speeding through and hit the curb. It wasn't pretty. You must respect the machine and your life, as well as those around you.
Especially the part about "as well as those around you". Look what this selfish idiot did to somebody's car! No indication of the driver's condition; I hope they're going to be ok.
