Calif. motorcyclist lands in van back seat, unhurt

VICTORVILLE, Calif. (AP) — A motorcyclist who plowed into a minivan landed unscathed in the back seat, and the driver didn't realize it until he turned into his nearby driveway, authorities said.

"We're calling this one a non-injury collision with a twist," Karen Hunt, spokeswoman for the San Bernardino County sheriff's Victorville station, told the Victorville Daily Press.

The van was slowing to make a left turn when the motorcycle rear-ended it Thursday.

Callers reporting the accident told authorities: "We don't know where the rider is," and there was concern he might have slid under the van, Hunt said.

"That's when it started to sound ominous," she said.

In reality, the rider had flown through the van's back window and landed in the backseat. The van driver continued to his home less than a half-block away, where he called out to his wife that he'd been rear-ended and needed to return to the accident scene.

As he turned around to back out of the driveway, he saw the dazed biker.

The rider's helmet absorbed most of the impact, and he only asked for an ice pack for his hand, Hunt said. He did not receive further medical treatment.

Neither man was cited for the accident. Their names were not immediately released.

Typical answer would be: "I never saw the motorcyclist." Gets you off every time. :mad:

New one will be: "I never heard the motorcyclist." :loco

No doubt California will cite the motorcyclist for something wrong; maybe following to closely, littering, unsafe conditions, disturbing the peace, or something equally inane. One of our local cycle-shop rags always has some piece by some cop and the motorcyclist is almost always guilty of doing something wrong.

I don't know the demographics of the Victorville area, but I'm wondering if it is one of those sanctuary city's where the people there have no insurance or license? One town council in McFarland, CA recently fired their chief of police this past week because too many there were without the proper license and insurance and he impounded an average of 60 cars a month so they fired him for bothering "Nice people." They hope to send a message to the new chief to lay off them "Nice people" and make the town more friendly.

Still makes one wonder though about busting through the rear of one's van though. Really old and deaf "Nice people" maybe? :wtf:
