A motorcycle and a coupe crashed on Interstate 205 sending both drivers to the hospital Friday. California Highway Patrol officer Hector Davila said the accident that happened at about 11 a.m. A Honda Civic coupe traveling east on I-205 east of the 11th Street exit hit the back of a tractor trailer rig in the right lane of the three lane freeway. Witnesses told the CHP the driver of the Civic then lost control of the car, swerving into the middle lane and crashing into a Honda Gold Wing motorcycle. The car and the motorcycle then crossed the left lane and crashed into the median. The motorcycle rider, described a middle-aged male, was found unconscious on the shoulder of the freeway while the Civic spun through the grass in the median, striking the guardrail and coming to rest facing west in the east bound side of the freeway. Davila said the motorcyclist regained consciousness at the scene but did not know the extent of his injuries. Davila said an American Medical Response ambulance took the motorcycle rider to San Joaquin General Hospital. The driver of the Civic, a young adult male, was also taken by ambulance to an unidentified area hospital with minor injuries. Davila said the driver could not remember the crash and may have had a head injury. CHP officers did not close lanes on the freeway, but traffic was slow passing through the crash scene. Eastbound traffic was back to normal by noon through the area. Contact Glenn Moore at 830-4252 or gmoore@tracypress.com.
