A passenger on a Harley Davidson who was struck by the same sedan that also rear-ended the motorcycle near the Rose Bowl remained hospitalized with major injuries, a California Highway Patrol sergeant said today.
The driver also remained hospitalized with serious injuries. The crash occurred at 9:06 a.m. Saturday on the eastbound Ventura (134) Freeway near the Orange Grove Boulevard exit, said CHP Sgt. Kevin Denmon.
A 62-year-old man was driving the 2013 Harley Davidson motorcycle in the slow lane at an unknown slow rate with a 58-year-old woman on the back, Denmon said. Both were from Bignon, France.
A 33-year-old North Hollywood man was driving a 2011 Chevrolet Aveo at 65 mph in the same lane, the sergeant said.
"At this time for unknown reasons, [the Aveo] struck [the motorcycle] in the rear,'' Denmon said. The motorcycle driver was ejected and landed on the roadway to the right, but the passenger was ejected to the rear and struck by the Aveo, he said. Both the motorcycle driver and his passenger were transported to Huntington Hospital, Denmon said.
