One Injured in San Diego Motorcycle Accident

A San Diego motorcyclist was severely injured after losing control and sliding underneath a bus in August, according to sources. Julian Kratt, 27, was riding his motorcycle northbound on Winter Gardens Boulevard when he lost control on a turn and slid underneath a stopped transit bus on the other side of the road. Brian Pennings, a public information officer from the California Highway Patrol, said that Kratt “failed to negotiate a left-hand turn” properly, leading to the accident.

“He laid the motorcycle down into the southbound lane and he was ejected and came to rest underneath a transit bus that was stopped on the west shoulder of the southbound lane,” Pennings said. “He was wedged underneath the transit bus until an emergency crew could extricate him.”

Kratt was rushed to Sharp Memorial Hospital with major injuries. Alcohol and drugs were not suspected to be factors in the accident.

  1. It is surprising that Kratt sustained no major injuries in this accident. Motorcyclists are more susceptible to catastrophic injuries because of the lack of protection, and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that bikers are 37 times more likely to die in a traffic accident than an automobile passenger is. The statistics for bus accident are equally troubling – each year, 24,000 people are injured in bus accidents, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
