Earlier this week, a motorcycle rider was seriously injured in a crash with a semi truck in the Ocotillo Wells area. According to ABC San Diego News Channel 10, the incident happened on State Route 78 on Wednesday, just after 12:30 p.m. Although very few details have been released about this crash, we do know that a motorcycle was struck by a tractor-trailer.  

First responders rushed to the scene, and the motorcycle rider had to be airlifted to a nearby hospital for treatment of injuries. At the time of the report, there was no information on that person’s current condition or on exactly how the crash happened. A portion of SR 78 was blocked as crews worked the scene. This truck-versus-motorcycle crash is likely still under investigation with local law enforcement officials.
