Man and Dog on Scooter Ejected Off 40ft Highway Road onto Car Roof - Consumers' Law Group

Man and Dog on Scooter Ejected Off 40ft Highway Road onto Car Roof

Aug 30, 2012

An unnamed man and his dog were traveling on Vespa northbound on an elevated Highway 101 road before their vehicle crashed and ejected the driver 40 feet below onto the roof of a car near central San Rafael. An ambulance transported the man who suffered critical injuries to the hospital and the dog died at the scene.

A rough description of the man was made available through a Mercury News story and witnesses at the scene. He was in his forties and had been wearing what is called a three-quarter type helmet. His dog was riding in a pouch on the moped. They were traveling at highway speeds of 60 miles per hour.

Upon attempting to negotiate a sweeping curve, the moped went out of control and headed towards the median. Unable to regain control of the moped, it slammed against the median ejecting both passengers into an abyss. The driver fell through a freeway gap between the north- and southbound lanes at about 3:20 p.m. and onto the traffic below. He landed on top of a stopped Volkswagen Jetta on Second Street. The dog and green scooter remained on the road forty feet above.

An ambulance rushed to the scene. Paramedics lifted the man with severe injuries into the ambulance and took him to Marin General Hospital. Any news of his injuries was not released Wednesday night.

Authorities disallowed traffic into a portion of downtown Second Street after the accident.

A fall from that height onto a car can lead into a serious injury either to the person falling or the people in the vehicle. California Highway Patrol Officer Andrew Barclay said that neither of teenagers was injured. Have you been injured while you were on the inside of a car? Contact us.

Carl Erickson of Novato witnessed the beginning and the end of the accident. He was commuting on a motorcycle from Sausalito and noticed that the green Vespa scooter was beginning to drift from the slow to the fast lane indicating that it would end in an absolute crash, “you could tell it was going down, ” he said.

When Erickson arrived to the scene, he only saw the scooter and the dog, he did not see the impact.

The dog was breathing slowly. Erickson then moved it to the side of the road to keep a car from hitting it. He also moved the Vespa off to the side.

Authorities are still investigating the crash.

""One more thing that makes me angry, is the realization that we let them control us, and dictate our moods, by allowing them to make us angry. This kinda becomes a vicious cycle, and the best way to end it is to simply throw it away, like an old pair of socks that are worn out but we keep wearing. ""

    College, adolescentes, mobylette.

    • Oh, dear! There always are some bright sparks who get the wrong end of the stick, and others who think they are absolutely "right" even if they are mistaken about some aspects of a question.
      I was "U …t and a permit are compulsory.
      The "adolescentes" mentioned above would therefore have been older than 14 if they were riding mobylettes, and not "borderline" pre-teenage girls in middle school.

  • Avatar unsckingcodez Going to Beijing for 60 days, What should I bring?
    Nov 11, 2008 by unsckingcodez | Posted in China

    I'm going to bounce around from my girlfriend's parent's multiple apartments, to several different hotels, to some people's couches.
    I planned to bring a backpack, 3 shirts, and 2 pairs of pants with a pair of socks …estions like "Do they have gyms". I ask a lot of questions.

    Also this is important. How is the General internet speed in China? Like the Hotels?

    And again, What the heck should I do for 60 days?

    • Beijing has literally everything, man. The expat scene there is thriving, and there are stores that carry imported foreign products that Chinese don't usually need, like cheese and tampons, and lotion that DOESN'T bleach …tobook as a good introduction to China, and its also the ideal souvenir for your trip. And as giving gifts to your host is appreciated, I think your girlfriend's parents would enjoy a copy as well for their bookshelves :)
