Miramar crash sends motorcycle rider to hospital with head wound, other serious injuries

A 28-year-old motorcyclist was hospitalized Friday with head trauma and other serious injuries after colliding with a van in Miramar, police said.

The crash happened a little before 9:50 a.m. when the van turned out of a private driveway into the path of the rider on his 2003 Yamaha R1 on Carroll Way near Carroll Road, San Diego police Officer John Buttle said.

Medics took the motorcyclist to a hospital for treatment of head trauma, internal injuries and fractures to his left ankle and left wrist, Buttle said. Though his wounds were serious, they were not considered life-threatening.

The 63-year-old woman driving the 2014 Chevrolet van was not injured, and alcohol was not suspected as a factor in the crash, Buttle said. Investigators were still determining Friday afternoon which of the motorists was at fault in the crash.
