Motorcyclist Pinned Under Vehicle After Chico Crash

Local authorities reported that a motorcyclist was trapped under a parked car after being involved in a collision in Chico on Thursday, April 18, 2019. Chico Police Department (CPD) reported that the motorcyclist suffered serious injuries during the crash. Medical officials at Enloe Hospital have stated that the injured man remains in hospital custody and listed his condition as critical. Police say that they are still investigating the accident.

Crash Information

CHP stated that the crash happened at about 10:30 p.m. The motorcyclist had been driving on West 3rd Street close to the Ash Avenue intersection when he apparently lost control of his vehicle. The motorcycle tipped over and slid underneath a parked car, leaving the motorcyclist pinned underneath. Further information about the circumstances of the accident has not yet been provided by officials.

After the crash took place, witnesses contacted CHP to report a collision possibly involving serious injuries. When emergency officials arrived at the crash scene, they extricated the motorcyclist from the wreck. The man was identified as a 23-year-old resident of Chico and officers say they discovered him with major trauma. The man was transported to the nearest hospital by ambulance to be given immediate medical attention. Specific information about the nature of his injuries was not provided.


Officers of CPD say that they do not know what caused the motorcyclist to lose control of his vehicle. Because motorcyclists need to maintain their balance in order to avoid an accident, it doesn’t take much to cause a serious crash and many different factors can lead to a major collision. Some of these factors include motorcycle defects, dangerous roadway conditions, medical issues, and more.

Contacting a Motorcycle Accident Attorney

Recovering after you have been hurt in a motorcycle accident can be very difficult, and many people spend years regaining their health. Apart from facing a difficult physical challenge, people are also left with financial issues as well. Paying for medical costs and having to take time off work often means being unsure of how you are going to pay the bills. However, in many cases, these losses can be recovered by filing a personal injury claim.

Often times, many people don’t know if their case merits hiring a lawyer. It’s true that not every case will require an attorney, but it is always best to find out by calling a professional. Most lawyers will provide you with a free phone consultation so that you can know what options might be available to you.
