Two motorcyclists hit each other head on! (10/11/09)

Anyone hear about this? I just listened to it on the radio. Two motorcyclists hit each other head-on on Skyline BLVD near Alice's restaurant.

Way to start a Sunday.

They said on the radio it happened 30 minutes ago so yea, that looks like it. I came to barf hoping there was a post about it, what type of motorcycles they were riding, what condition they're in.

I came across the scene a few minutes after it happened. It was about half way up 84 between Lahonda and 35. A pearl white 848 and another retro standard, both riders alive, one had a compound leg fracture and the other one had just regained conciousness when we got there and paramedics were already on the scene. Pretty nasty situation for sure. Ride safe people!!

It was on 84 about two miles west of Alice's, not on Skyline.

I rolled by it before any emergency vehicles arrived, but around a half dozen other Ducatis already pulled over and directing traffic around the one rider on his back, in the middle of the road. Head-on? Nasty.

When I got to STP, emergency vehicles were flooding down 84, coming from every which way. Hope the riders are okay

It was mid-corner on one of those last 120 degree bends before Alice's (or after, depending on your direction). So possibly.

passed by this too. According to some riders at STP,
the duck went wide hit the norton. The duck had 299 miles
on the odometer. Glad riders are ok.

I was headed down 84 to La Honda for the Ducati Days event when a police car came up fast from behind with siren and lights. Got up to the light before the one way section, went through that and then shortly after came to a complete halt. Next comes an ambulance. Later the Woodside Paramedics came out along with a fire engine. At that point I turned around and went back and hung at Alice's until I saw traffic start to come back out, and then went down to Ducati Days. I heard that it was head on between a Ducati and a Norton.
One of them must have been hurt pretty bad, someone who went by said they had biohazard bags out. When I went through they were tying the two destroyed bikes to a flatbed. CHP was on the scene and looked pissed off.

I hope both riders heal up quickly.

I road up on this accident (the one on 84) very shortly after it happened. It was a bad crash and I hope both riders heal.

I doubt if they read this board, but I wanted to give a BIG kudos to the off-duty emergency-trained people who quickly took action and tended to the riders until (and during) the arrival of the on-duty professionals. Their ability to lead and utilize the rest the people who were there to help, was absolutely vital.

Unfortunately, I later witnessed the deer vs. rider incident. Fortunately, the rider limped away with only what appears to be a badly sprained ankle; however, the deer and his bike weren't as lucky. Thanks to Neal and (Bilget?) for turning around with your trailer, and hauling his bike home for him. Class act!
