Sunday morning crash injures motorcyclist

KELSEYVILLE – A motorcyclist was transported to a Sonoma County hospital on Sunday following a morning crash.


The California Highway Patrol reported that the crash occurred shortly before 8 a.m. in the 10000 block of Fairway Drive at Larkspur Drive.


Dan Mola, a firefighter and paramedic with Kelseyville Fire Protection District, said an ambulance and engine responded to the crash scene, where they found that the male rider had lost control of the motorcycle while coming down a hill.


The rider ran into some bushes and hit the side of a parked pickup truck, Mola said.


“He was ejected from the motorcycle about 20 feet,” Mola said of the crash victim.


Mola said the rider suffered abrasions on his back, and his helmet was scuffed up as well.


The injured man also didn't know exactly where he was and asked repetitive questions, which Mola said was indicative of a concussion.


Due to concerns about head trauma, REACH air ambulance was called, landing at the nearby elementary school and transporting the rider to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital, Mola said.
