A driver with Preferred Towing loads a motorcycle involved in a crash on San Francisquito Canyon Road on Wednesday.

 

A motorcyclist failed to make a sharp turn on San Francisquito Canyon Road today and slid across 70 feet of rough pavement on the snaking roadway.

The motorcyclist, whose name was not released, was taken to the hospital with multiple abrasions to the knees and elbows, officials said. His injuries were not deemed life-threatening.

About 12:15 p.m., the motorcyclist missed a sharp curve just before a small bridge on the stretch of road six miles north of Copper Hill Drive near the Drinkwater Flats off-roading area, said CHP Officer Allen Begley.

“Apparently he was going too fast,” Begley said. “He failed to negotiate the turn and he ended up with multiple abrasions.”

The man was taken to a local hospital shortly before 1 p.m.

Initially, emergency response crews received word that the motorcyclist hit the bridge.

“He slid 70 feet but his bike hit the guardrail on the bridge,” he said.
