An accident involving a motorcycle and a truck sent four people to the hospital earlier in December in Two Rock, not far from Petaluma, according to police. The accident occurred on Saturday, Dec. 16, in the evening hours. Police said that it was caused by the driver of a pickup truck, which turned in front of a motorcycle, injuring multiple people.
The person riding the motorcycle suffered what police said were major injuries. The accident occurred at 6:48 p.m. The victim was transported to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital. A hospital spokesperson said that the victim was a 46-year-old male and his condition was not updated after the crash.
The California Highway Patrol was dispatched to the accident scene, which was located in the 3100 block of Pepper Road, not far from Bodega Avenue. The pickup truck, a Chevy Colorado, was being driven by a 35-year-old woman. The California Highway Patrol said that the woman negotiated a u-turn on the roadway right in front of the motorcycle.
The woman driving the truck had two children with her, ages three and 10. All three of the people in the pickup truck suffered injuries that the authorities described as minor. The injured parties were transported to a local hospital for evaluation and treatment of their minor injuries.
