Teens Injured in Northern California Motorcycle Crash
The families of two teens know all too well the damage a driver can do to a motorcycle in a crash. On Sunday, according to a report in the Press Democrat, two 15-year-old boys were injured in a motorcycle crash in Clearlake. Police believe that a man in a pickup truck followed behind a car as it crossed a double yellow line and attempted to pass the motorcycle carrying the teens. When the motorcycle attempted to turn left onto 33rd Avenue, the truck slammed into the bike and both boys were thrown off the motorcycle. The motorcycle passenger incurred major injuries and was taken to a hospital via helicopter. The motorcycle’s driver suffered moderate injuries and was taken to St. Helena Hospital for treatment.
