BMW Driver Hits Motorcyclist, Flees from Interstate 680 in Pleasanton

Posted By The Dunnion Law Firm || 23-Jun-2009

PLEASANTON - A motorcyclist was seriously injured Monday evening after he was struck by a car on Interstate 680, the California Highway Patrol said. The driver of the car then sped away heading northbound.

The hit-and-run occurred about 6:35 p.m. on northbound I-680, south of Sunol Boulevard. CHP reported that the driver of a 2004 white BMW sedan was driving at upward of 100 mph and almost collided with several vehicles.

The driver began closely following a 2005 Chevrolet SUV before a curve in the highway and the motorcyclist was just ahead driving a 2007 Suzuki GSXR750. The motorcyclist's rear wheel was struck by the front of the BMW and the motorcylist was ejected onto the pavement and his head collided with the concrete roadway.

The driver of the SUV stopped to assist the motorcyclist, who was taken to Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley with major injuries.

The BMW driver reportedly drove away with a flat front tire. CHP is trying to determine the driver's identity.
