Local man injured in motorcycle crash

CBS5 is reporting that a local man was injured when his motorcycle collided with another on a Peninsula highway on Sunday afternoon.

The TV station reported that the unnamed 23-year-old Alameda man was headed west on Highway 84 in Woodside when, for unknown reasons, he steered his white 2009 Ducati into the eastbound lane, striking another motorcyclist.

The station reported that both men were ejected from their bikes in the crash, and that the Alameda man was knocked unconscious and suffered head trauma. The other cyclist, a 54-year-old San Francisco man, suffered a broken leg.

Both men were reportedly treated at Stanford Hospital.

Sounds like the highway was shut and reopened an hour after the accident, which reportedly took place at 1:10 p.m.
