PPD: One injured in motorcycle crash at Stoneridge and Hacienda

Biker allegedly tried to flee officers in routine traffic stop

A motorcyclist was injured Sunday afternoon when, while speeding away from police, he slammed into the back of a car and was thrown from his bike, Pleasanton police said.

The unidentified motorcyclist was seen by police about 2:30 p.m. headed east on Stoneridge Drive at Hopyard Road at a high rate of speed, police said. Officers tried to pull the motorcyclist over, but he instead sped up and, at Hacienda Drive, hit the back of another vehicle, and was thrown into the air.

Police gave immediate medical aid to the motorcyclist, who was soon taken to Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley for treatment of what Pleasanton police said are non-life-threatening injuries. No one else was injured.

The busy intersection of Stoneridge and Hacienda drives was closed for almost three hours as the motorcyclist was treated and police investigated the scene. It wasn't known late Sunday afternoon whether drugs or alcohol were factors in the crash.

Anyone who witnessed the collision is asked to call the Pleasanton Police Department at 931-5100.

Wow...that crash was brutal. The driver's shoe was across the intersection and the cycle was demolished. Amazing he survived. To. Do. Jail. Time.

A three hour road closed mess!

So sorry for the poor person who got his car run into.

Those types of people are likely responsible for repeated incidents,
sometimes causing accidents, then running away.

I'm glad to hear the PPD was alert,
and hope that we will hear what charges and what result came to the perpetrator.

Sorry, but further commenting on this topic has been closed.
