Motorcyclist Injured In Recent Rancho Bernardo Crash
(CNS) — An 18-year-old motorcyclist suffered life-threatening injuries from a crash in Rancho Bernardo with a car driven by an 80-year-old woman late Thursday afternoon.
The woman was driving a 2008 blue Chrysler PT Cruiser eastbound in the 16600 block of Pomerado Road, near Rancho Bernardo Road, while the male motorcyclist was driving westbound, according to Officer Robert Heims of the San Diego Police Department.
The Chrysler turned left onto northbound Caminito Vecinos, into the path of the motorcyclist, which broadsided the Chrysler’s right front passenger door. He was ejected from the motorcycle and sustained life-threatening injuries.
The motorcyclist was taken to a hospital, where he is being treated for face and head trauma and brain bleeding, Heims said.
The driver of the Chrysler was not injured. Drugs or alcohol are not suspected to be factors in the crash.

Step 1. Collect Contact Information
Once everyone is safely off , exchange information with anyone else involved in the crash. Get the name, address, phone number, insurance information, and license numbers for all drivers. Make sure to take as many photos as possible. Jot down the other driver’s license playe information. Also make sure to write down the make, model and color of the vehicle(s) involved in the accident.
Step 2. Call 911 Immediately
Call 911 to get the police to the scene of the accident as soon as possible. If there has been property damage (anything over $500) be sure to file a police report. If you or anyone involved has been injured, be sure to request medical attention.
The police report can be vital in your efforts to recover for damage to your bike, clothing, or for physical injuries – many of which may not become evident for hours, or even days after an accident!
Step 3. Take Images Of The Scene
If you are able to do so in a safe manner, take photos of the street, any damaged street signs, curbs, pot holes, etc. Remember to document the when, where and how.
Step 4. Gather Witnesses
Having eyewitnesses willing to vouch for negligence of the at-fault party is critical for your claim. If possible to do so, contact as many eyewitnesses as possible and interview them. The recording can be done via an audio recorder on your phone, or by writing it down on a piece of paper.
