Motorcyclist Collides with Horse Trailer

from noozhawk: " [Eliason] said the motorcyclist had been traveling on a private driveway before colliding with a horse trailer that was being towed by a truck along Refugio Road. The injured motorcyclist, a male in his 20s, was transported by CalStar medical helicopter to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital for treatment of critical injuries, Eliason said. A second motorcycle rider was evaluated at the scene for a medical condition but didn’t strike the trailer, he added. The driver of the truck towing the trailer wasn’t aware it had been hit until reaching his destination, where he saw the damage and a shoe wedged in the trailer, Eliason said. After seeing evidence of a collision, the driver retraced his route, Eliason said. Officers from the CHP’s Buellton area office will investigate the circumstances of the crash.

Kudos to the truck/trailer driver for going back. I hope it was a boot, not a "shoe," that was found in the trailer... Sounds horrific; best wishes to the victim.
