Drinking may have been involved in motorcycle crash

MIDDLETOWN – A motorcyclist who may have been drinking received major injuries in collision Friday evening.


The California Highway Patrol's incident logs reported that a solo motorcycle collision took place at about 6:30 p.m. at 20700 Jerusalem Grade Road at Canyon Road near Middletown.


The rider, who witnesses said had “a lot to drink,” was flown to a Sonoma County hospital, but the CHP did not specify which hospital in particular.


Because of the extent of the rider's injuries, CHP was unable to get a statement. They did report that the subject may have possible bleeding on the left side of the brain.


A blood sample was ordered from the motorcyclist due to concerns about driving under the influence.


No further information about the crash or the rider's condition was available Friday night.
