California Highway Patrol Investigates Crash
Being an officer in the President’s motorcade is a huge honor and a pretty major deal. Being hurt in the line of duty comes with the territory.
According to reports, a California Highway Patrol officer who rode in President Barack Obama’s motorcade was sadly injured in a crash as they were escorting the President through Los Angeles.
The officer on the motorcycle went down around 10 o’clock in the late morning. This happened on the 405 Freeway at the Olympic Boulevard. The officer had to be taken to the local hospital but was okay. Further details into the crash were not immediately released.
However, an eyewitness was able to catch part of the crash on a video on their cellphone.
The CHP said that they would be investigating the crash.
Luckily, the crash didn’t delay President Obama’s trip to Los Angeles International Airport. Obama landed at the Palm Springs International Airport at about 11:40 a.m.
Yet Another Motorcycle Crash
A motorcycle crash can happen at anytime and almost anywhere. They’re sadly not uncommon, especially if it’s a lone rider. Most the time if you’re a “biker” you enjoy weekend or weekly long trips with a group of people. However, that’s not always the case and of course just because you’re in a group doesn’t mean that you won’t have an accident. Accident’s are always possible.
According to the police, an Azusa man sadly passed away on a Saturday afternoon after a pickup truck rear-ended him on his motorcycle on the 210 Freeway. This caused a chain reaction crash.
Man Dies in Motorcycle Crash
Twenty-six year old, Enrique Alvarado-Cervantes sadly died in the crash. The crash was reported around 1 p.m. that day on the eastbound 210 Freeway. According to California Highway Patrol Officer, Joshua Duran the crash happened just west of the Vernon Avenue.
The officer on scene reported that the young man was riding a 2000 Suzuki GSX-R in the fast lane. When the traffic ahead came to a sudden stop. Which if you’ve ever ridden a motorcycle then you know how hard it is to stop so suddenly, let alone going as fast as traffic was. That’s one reason I personally won’t own one. The chance of not stopping in time is too great for my taste.
The report also said there was a 71 year old man from Alta Loma involved. He was driving directly behind the motorcycle. He was driving a 2000 Dodge Ram 2500 pickup truck. Which is huge and not a great combination in a motorcycle crash.
There was also a 2000 Ford F-150 pickup truck driving in front of the motorcycle, in the lead was a 2011 Lexus IS 250.
Officer Duran’s Statement:
(The pickup truck driver) was unable to stop his Dodge in time to avoid a collision. The Dodge collided into the Suzuki motorcycle and Ford F-150 directly ahead, ejecting Alvarado-Cervantes onto the roadway. The force of this collision pushed the Ford forward into the rear of the Lexus.
Paramedics announced that Alvarado-Cervantes had passed at the scene of the motorcycle crash.
According to Duran, the driver of the Dodge pickup truck was the one started the crash. He suffered some injuries which included a broken wrist. The driver of the Ford Pickup truck suffered from minor injuries. The driver of the Lexus was luckily unhurt. The closer to the motorcycle was the done the most harm.
No arrests have been made as of yet. As the investigation continues there might be an arrest. The police issued a Sig Alert for the carpool and three right handed lanes of the eastbound 210 Freeway. It was issued through almost 5 o’clock that evening.
