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.
