2nd Motorcycle Accident in Apple Valley Tuesday Night

APPLE VALLEY, Calif. (VVNG.com) A second motorcycle accident Tuesday night sent the rider to the hospital with moderate injuries.

A three-vehicle collision occurred just after 9 p.m. on Highway 18 and Pawnee Road.

A white Chevy pickup truck and a Harley-Davidson motorcycle were traveling westbound on Highway 18 when a Chevy Malibu made a left turn in front of the two vehicles.

“I was driving in the left lane heading westbound and the motorcycle was in the right lane driving the same direction,” stated Robert Cabrera, 21, of Lucerne Valley.

“The Malibu cut in front of me and I hit it which caused my truck to turn and the motorcycle to hit me” stated Cabrera.

The rider of the Harley was the only one to sustain injuries and was transported by ground ambulance to a local hospital.

“I saw the accident in my rear-view mirror, and I knew the motorcyclist was behind me so I turned around,” stated Rick Lesher, 47, of Corona.

“I got out my car and started praying for the rider, it hits close to home since I ride myself. I was so glad to see him talking.”

Deputy Walsh with the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Apple Valley station confirmed the injuries did not appear life-threatening.

Westbound Highway was temporarily diverted onto Outer Highway 18 while a tow truck worked on clearing the scene.

Drugs or alcohol were not in factor in this accident according to Deputy Walsh.
