Motorcycle Accident Causes Personal Injury

According to a Citrus Heights Police Department news release, the driver of the van hit the motorcyclist and then fled the scene of the accident. It appearsthat the van made an evasive maneuver that caused the driver to veer into the motorcyclist’s lane. There is no indication of speeding by the motorcyclist. The suspect was later located and arrested on suspicion of hit and run with injury.

The motorcyclist was taken to San Juan Hospital where he is listed in critical condition. According to police, the motorcyclist is suffering from major injuries.

Safe Driving During Road Closures

The collision caused a five-hour-long road closure on westbound Greenback Lane where the accident took place. Authorities closed the intersection in order to investigate the collision.

In cases like this, it is especially important to take caution while driving. You are responsible for preventing personal injury to yourself and others. When you come upon an accident scene while driving, slow down and look for signs or traffic controllers. Try to avoid looking around out of curiosity.
