RICHMOND -- A motorcyclist who hit a parked truck on San Pablo Avenue is expected to survive his injuries, police said.
The wreck happened about 8:45 p.m. Wednesday just north of Barrett Avenue, Richmond police Sgt. Nicole Abetkov said. Police are investigating what caused the unidentified man to run into the truck, but Abetkov said drugs and alcohol do not appear to be a factor.
A witness to the aftermath said debris was strewed about 100 yards and that the motorcycle was nearly unrecognizable. However, Abetkov said the motorcyclist was conscious and talking coherently with officers at the scene. He was transported to John Muir Medical Center, and his injures were not considered life-threatening, police said.
"Looks like he was extremely lucky," Abetkov said.
