An unidentified motorcyclist was rushed to Memorial Hospital Thursday afternoon after a collision around 2 p.m. on Elliot Avenue.

According to Gregory Yaeger, a Santa Rosa Police Department officer, the motorcyclist was heading westbound, and swerved into oncoming eastbound traffic into a Honda Odyssey.

Emergency Medical Services (EMS) took the rider to Memorial Hospital. According to SRPD, their condition is currently unknown.

The rider was struck by a minivan directly across from the All Faculty Union (AFA) offices on Elliot.

“People tear out of Emeritus and floor it down the road. I’m always hearing tires screeching,” said Carol Valencia, administrative director for AFA, who was inside the office at the time of the collision. “This kind of thing is nothing new for this area.”

SRJC Police were first to respond, but declined to comment.

    I saw this accident happen firsthand. He wasn’t struck by the minivan the guy on the motorcycle was doing a trick on his bike and lost control and went head on to the minivan. The kid driving the vehicle wasn’t at fault.
