Mororcycle Accident at HWY 290 (530 pm)

My best friend just text me that there is a motorcycle accident at 290 and Spring Cypress. Must have happend near 5:00 pm today. The wrecked bike was a cruiser type bike and there was also a sport bike parked next to it.... (?)

He says it's serious since there is a blanket over the person.

I have very limited details but will see what else I find out.

Hope everythng is okay, my prayers go out to him/her either way......

Wondering it is rain related. It just poured and the wind was crazy for the last 30 min and then all of sudden stopped/moved on.....

Sorry, I don't. My friend can't tell the difference b/w one from another. I didn't know life flight was there. Crazy.

Not to scare you or anything, but I suggest you call your friend just in case......better safe to check anyway.....

I didnt spot a sport bike leavin my house or coming back at the scene i left when life flight was there and came home when they were out taking pictures. the cruiser looked very mangled and there wasnt a sports bike in sight and the other van and car were still sitting there having pictures taken when i just passed by.

that was a pretty awful storm that came through right about that time... and tons of lighting. I think we got 1.4 inches in the hour of rain..?

Im pretty sure it was a Kawi Vulcan. I saw it on my way home from the gym yesterday. It looked really bad, they had the freeway closed for a little bit. The bike looked like it slid out for awhile.
