Head-On Crash Between Motorcycle and Car Closed Highway

Major injuries caused.

A head-on collision involving a motorcycle and a car stopped traffic for nearly an hour on state Highway 84 in unincorporated San Mateo County west of Portola Valley Saturday afternoon.

The crash occurred shortly before 1:30 p.m. when a 20-year-old Stockton man riding a motorcycle west on Highway 84 lost control west of state Highway 35 while trying to negotiate a left curve in the road, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The motorcycle crossed over into oncoming traffic, and collided head-on with an eastbound 2007 Lexus driven by a 67-year-old Menlo Park man, CHP officials said.

The motorcyclist suffered severe but non-life threatening injuries.

The collision closed Highway 84 in both directions for 40 minutes, and one-way traffic control remained in effect until both lanes reopened at 2:57 p.m.
