Major Injuries to Copperopolis Man in Motorcycle Collision on Hwy 4

Angels Camp, CA...On January 20, 2018, at approximately 1750 hours, San Andreas CHP Officers were dispatched to a traffic collision on SR-4 east of Stallion Way. The now injured 53 year old Copperopolis was observed driving his motorcycle recklessly on westbound SR-4 east of Stallion Way. He was passing other vehicles over the solid double yellow lines as another Copperopolis man was traveling eastbound. As the two vehicles passed each other the front of the motorcycle impacted the left rear of the 2000 Chevy. This impact caused the motorcycle to overturn and was ejected from the vehicle.





the motorcyclist was flown by helicopter to Memorial Hospital in Modesto for treatment of major injuries. It was found that he was wearing a non-DOT approved helmet during the collision, which offered minimal protection to his head and face during the collision.

The highway was completely blocked for approximately 39 minutes, resulting in minor traffic delays in the area. One lane of traffic was eventually opened, and the entire highway was re-opened at approximately 1840 hours.

At this time, alcohol and/or drugs are being considered as factors in this collision, along with dangerous passes being made by Party #1 just prior to the collision.

This is the way most motorcyclists drive. They weave in and out of traffic and cross double yellow lines all of the time. Most of them have been drinking and on drugs at the same time. Welcome to California!

Can't say I'm surprised. I drive Hwy 4 between Copper and Angels daily and had a pickup truck pass four of us in the fog last week on a double yellow in that area just missing an oncoming vehicle.

Once again we are forced to pay for some idiot on a death machine.

Put the bikes in a museum where they belong.

No more $100K life flights for idiots.

Plenty of idiots on our roads - particularly long stretches of highway along routes 4 & 49 - who drive cars and trucks, too.

I watched this happen from the car behind.

This one unfolded about 150 feet from my own eyes as we traveled down hwy 4 at 45+ mph. I was the vehicle you passed seconds before you nailed the suburban. Tried to nail my mirrors on the way by,on a double yellow , in a high banked blind turn. Afour door, kid filled , loaded for snow day 6000 + pound F250 yep that was me. The guy who was first on the ground to help in any way I could. I'm just glad it wasn't my truck you hit. It's hard enough explaining to my family why i jumped out and left them there in the truck, to help you on the ground in the dark in the middle of the highway. .

Moves as bold as you made ultimately cost you a lot more than a ticket. Unfortunately your decisions impacted more than just you. You get to live with this bad judgement call/ style of riding for a while, as I saw your injuries first hand. And Non dot helmet, lucky you still have a forehead and eyes bud. I watched the whole thing in slow motion. Props to your fellow riders for trying to calm you down seconds before you chose that suburban as a landing spot. You owe a big thanks to those professional first responders. They kicked ass and had you on a board stabilized and mobile in a matter of mins. We are all lucky to have this service by default. No bias, no political stance, no questions of how or why you're there on the ground, or personal thoughts on motorcycles on the road. plain and simple those professional humans helped save your life in no time flat . (Big thank you, chp, emt, 911 dispatchers and fire paramedics)

Sir, I truly Hope you fully recover and are able to understand the entirety of your choices made there on that day. And in some way thank you, as I now have high hope my children will never drive like that having seen the outcome first hand.

1. Don't drink and drive!!! It's 2018. Come on now!!!
2. Buy a real helmet. Your lucky you get to buy a new one, period!!!
3. Never wear tennis shoes on a bike. You know exactly what I'm talking about.
