An adult male motorcyclist was airlifted to John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek with major injuries after colliding with a Subaru Outback on Marsh Creek Road late on the morning of Wednesday, April 20th. 

“At approximately 11:45, I got a call for a 2-vehicle collision involving a motorcycle,” said California Highway Patrol (CHP) Officer Walsh. “It appears both parties were heading westbound on Marsh Creek [Road]. One of the vehicles was turning into Round Valley [Regional Preserve] here, and it appears the motorcycle impacted the rear of the other vehicle.”

The motorcyclist was described as drifting in and out of consciousness at the time he was airlifted. The occupants of the Subaru were evaluated on-scene by ambulance crews and released with minor or no injuries, according to East Contra Costa Fire Protection District (ECCFPD) Battalion Chief Jeff Burris.

Marsh Creek Road was closed in both directions for approximately 30 minutes following the collision. The motorcyclist rear-ended the Subaru while attempting to pass a third vehicle, a pickup truck, according to the truck's driver and a passenger eyewitness, and the collision is still under investigation by the CHP.
