Motorcycle crash injures rider, causes rush-hour gridlock

By From page A3 | February 01, 2014

FAIRFIELD — An injury crash involving a motorcycle on eastbound Interstate 80 snarled rush-hour traffic Friday afternoon.

California Highway Patrol Officer Chris Parker said the crash was reported at 4:27 p.m. He said the crash, just west of Abernathy Road, involved a 1997 Chevrolet pickup and a motorcycle.

The motorcycle rider, who was described only as a 47-year-old Fairfield man, suffered major injuries and was transported by ground ambulance to Kaiser Permanente Vacaville Medical Center, Parker said.

As the CHP investigated the crash, officers closed off the three leftmost lanes for about 30 minutes, causing major gridlock for several miles.

Parker said it wasn’t known whether anyone in the pickup was injured.
