Motorcyclist critically injured in crash on Dublin Canyon Road


A motorcycle rider sustained serious injuries after their bike struck a pole along Dublin Canyon Road during the afternoon commute Friday, according to police.

Officers were called out to Dublin Canyon Road near Laurel Creek Drive on reports of a motorcyclist down around 4:45 p.m. Friday, according to Pleasanton police Lt. Brandon Stocking.

Arriving police and fire personnel found the rider unresponsive with major injuries after crashing into a pole, according to Stocking. The motorcyclist, whose name was not released, was transported to Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley and was listed in critical condition.

The motorcycle was the only vehicle involved in the crash, Stocking said. The cause remains under investigation, and several witnesses remained on scene to provide statements to officers.

That section of Dublin Canyon Road was closed for nearly five hours until reopening around 10 p.m. Friday.

Anyone with information about the crash can contact Pleasanton PD’s traffic unit at 931-5100.
