Oakley man injured in Sunday crash near Middletown

MIDDLETOWN – An Oakley man was injured Sunday when his motorcycle collided with a van on Highway 29.


The crash, which occurred at 4:45 p.m. Sunday, injured 51-year-old Darren Deberry, according to the California Highway Patrol.


The report from CHP Officer Steve Tanguay explained that Vargas Trejo, 37, of Middletown, was driving a 1994 Mercury Voyager van southbound on Highway 29 with six juvenile passengers – ages 3 to 17 – in the van.


Trejo was stopped and waiting to turn left onto Bradford Road when he looked in his mirror and saw that there was a motorcycle traveling southbound approaching his location, Tanguay said.


It appeared to Trejo that the motorcycle was not going to be able to stop in time before it got to the van, and so he moved the van forward to try to create more space for the motorcycle, according to Tanguay.


Tanguay said that Deberry, who was riding his 2000 Harley Davidson motorcycle, ran into the rear of the van and was ejected from the motorcycle, landing in the roadway.


Deberry was transported by CHP helicopter to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital for injuries sustained in this collision, which Tanguay said didn't injury anyone in the van.


He said alcohol is not believed to be a factor in this collision, which is being investigated by Officer Kevin Domby.
