SLO crash sends motorcyclist to the hospital
May 21, 2013
San Luis Obispo resident Phillip Jones, 21, was riding his motorcycle westbound on Foothill Boulevard Monday around 4:50 p.m. when an 18-year-old female driving an SUV attempted a left turn into the Mustang Village apartment complex. The driver of the SUV did not see Jones coming prior to making her left turn and crashed into his motorcycle.
The crash threw Jones into another vehicle waiting to turn out of Mustang Village and onto Foothill Boulevard.
Responders transported Jones to a local hospital with significant trauma to his leg. Jones did not report any other injuries, and the leg trauma does not appear to be life threatening.
San Luis Obispo police and fire departments responded to the collision. Police say alcohol and drugs did not appear to factor into the crash and that the collision did not appear to be criminal in nature.
