Motorcycle collides head-on with Lexus

A head-on collision Saturday involving a motorcycle and a car stopped traffic for nearly an hour on state Highway 84 in unincorporated San Mateo County near Skylonda.

The motorcyclist, a 20-year-old Stockton man, suffered severe but non-life threatening injuries.

The crash occurred shortly before 1:30 p.m. when the man riding west on Highway 84 (La Honda Road) lost control west of state Highway 35 (Skyline Boulevard) while trying to negotiate a left curve in the road, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The motorcycle crossed over into oncoming traffic, and collided head-on with an eastbound 2007 Lexus driven by a 67-year-old Menlo Park man, CHP officials said.

The collision closed Highway 84 in both directions for 40 minutes, and one-way traffic control remained in effect until both lanes reopened at 2:57 p.m.

"Some Guy" posted that the motorcyclist "got what he deserved". Really? He deserved to DIE because he made a riding error?? [Portion removed. Comment on the topic without attacking other posters.]

"HillbillyHaven": The person did not die but did suffer injuries. "Some Guy" and his comment show what type of person he is.
