San Francisco Motorcycle Accident was responsible for leaving one person seriously injured. The crash happened just before 6 a.m. on Tuesday, June 16, on U.S. Highway 101, near the Silver Avenue exit.

According to CBS-San Francisco, the motorcyclist and a commercial bus were both traveling south along the highway when they collided. A spokesperson with the California Highway Patrol, CHP Officer Mike Ferguson, explained that the impact of the crash forced the motorcyclist to be ejected from the machine and left him with serious injuries.

The victim was rushed to a local hospital in order to receive further treatment, while the driver of the bus was uninjured in the incident.

The accident highlights the need for motorists and motorcyclists alike to be more aware of the importance of sharing the road with one another. This means motorists should always look twice before moving into or out of traffic. Furthermore, motorcyclists should make every effort to be more visible on the road by wearing reflective clothing and always utilizing a headlight.
