Menlo Park: Motorcyclist injured in Highway 101 crash


A motorcyclist involved in a multiple-vehicle collision early Tuesday morning (April 9) on northbound Highway 101 near Willow Road in Menlo Park suffered a compound fracture in one of his legs, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The motorcyclist struck a sound wall at a high rate of speed after colliding with a vehicle at about 4:55 a.m., leaving his bike mangled, Menlo Park Fire Protection District Battalion Chief Tom Calvert said. The man, said to be in his late 20s or early 30s, was taken to Stanford Hospital.

Nobody else was injured, but a big rig and sedan were involved in a separate non-injury collision nearby that blocked the two right lanes.
