Douglas Flat, CA — A 50-year-old Arnold man is hospitalized with serious injuries after he collided with a car while riding a motorcycle on Highway 4 Friday afternoon.
CHP says Robert Powell was riding his 2003 Harley Davidson west bound when a car driven by 51-year-old Karen Debord had stopped to make a left turn into the driveway of the Chatom Vinyard Winery.
Powell then reportedly pulled into the oncoming lane to pass the vehicles stopped on the roadway. Police say that at about the same time, Debord began to make her left hand turn, taking her directly into the path of Powell´s motorcycle which impacted Debord´s car on the drivers side.
Powell was transported to Doctor´s Hospital in Modesto with serious injuries. Debord was uninjured in the crash.
