The passenger on a motorcycle suffered serious injuries Sunday night when a car on U.S. Highway 101 in San Jose sideswiped the motorcycle, the California Highway Patrol reported.
At about 7:25 p.m., a Harley Davidson motorcycle was headed south in one of the slow lanes on Highway 101 just north of the Interstate Highway 880 interchange when that cycle was sideswiped by a Toyota Camry, which had drifted from one of the southbound fast lanes, said CHP Officer Ross Lee.
The motorcycle went down, its driver and passenger landing on the pavement. The passenger suffered a broken leg, Lee said, and was taken to a nearby hospital.
The driver of the motorcycle suffered minor injuries, Lee said. The Camry’s driver was not injured.
No citations had been issued as of 8:15 p.m. The accident was still being investigated tonight, Lee said.
