Motorcyclist in Collision in Critical Condition

The man is believed to be a Hermosa Beach resident, say police.

The motorcyclist who broadsided a vehicle turning left in front of him on Sepulveda Boulevard Thursday afternoon is stabilized and in critical condition, said Mark Mason, a Manhattan Beach Police Sergeant in the traffic division.

The injured motorcyclist was taken to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, the go-to facility for trauma and head injuries, where surgery was performed.

Officials have yet to conclusively identify the man because he did not have identification. However, the motorcycle's registration and a friend who passed by the collision scene support the probability that he is a Hermosa Beach resident. The friend and his wife drove by the collision scene and have been calling their motorcycle-riding friend's cell phone without any response after realizing the bike at the collision scene was their friend's. The motorcycle is a 2001 Harley-Davidson Dyna Wide Glide, said Mason.

A physician and off-duty firefighter who delivered medical attention to the cyclist before paramedics arrived cleared the man's airway, said Mason.

I rode motorcycles for over 45 years but I don't anymore due to car driver cell phones and texing and picture taking and inattention to the road and surroundings.
