Motorcycle Rider Injured in La Riviera Accident
A motorcycle rider was injured in La Riviera on July 17 when slowed traffic caused the biker to collide with a stationary object. The accident happened at about 7:15 in the morning along westbound U.S. 50 just east of Watt Avenue, according to the California Highway Patrol (CHP). The traffic slowed, which caused the motorcyclist to make an emergency maneuver, and resulted in the bike hitting the center divide. A fire truck was used to block the HOV lane to allow emergency personnel to transport the injured rider to the hospital. No word has been released on the condition of the motorcycle rider at this time.
