Oakland, CA – Motorcyclist Injured after Collision with Car along Eastbound Highway 24 near Martin Luther King Jr. Way Off-Ramp
Oakland, CA (August 29, 2018) – The California Highway Patrol reported that a motorcyclist sustained injuries as the result of a collision with a car that took place along the eastbound lanes of Highway 24, in the vicinity of the Martin Luther King Jr. Way off-ramp. Officers initially logged the incident a little before 5:30 PM on Tuesday, August 28, 2018. At this time, no detailed information concerning the identities of the motorcyclist or the motorist involved in the crash has been revealed.
According to the CHP report, the motorcyclist had been heading down Highway 24 when, for indeterminate reasons, the bike collided with a larger vehicle, which ultimately slid into the median following the impact. Sometime later, paramedics were dispatched to the crash site and rendered medical aid to the motorcyclist, who sustained non-life threatening injuries during the accident.
Officials did not specify if the rider received treatment at the scene or required hospitalization.
Meanwhile, authorities potentially identified the larger vehicle as a silver Toyota Camry.
At approximately 6:00 PM, officials completed cleanup procedures.
Presently, the investigation is ongoing. As more evidence continues to surface, more information will be released to public sources.
We extend our most heartfelt prayers and our most loving thoughts to the injured motorcyclist and wish this individual a swift and efficient recovery.

Given the circumstances, officials are still unsure of why the motorcycle and the car collided along Highway 24. As the investigation continues, forensic teams will inspect both vehicles and examine photos of the crash site to determine if the rider or the motorist experienced mechanical issues or system failure prior to the collision. Likewise, officials will consider if drugs, alcohol, negligence, recklessness, or distracted driving played any role in the events leading up to the accident.
In the event of a traffic accident caused by negligence or wrongdoing, the non-guilty injured parties may have the right to file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party and, ultimately, receive compensation for inconveniences ranging from medical bills to vehicle damage.
