Motorcyclist Taken to Hospital After Two-Vehicle Crash on Demaree Street
VISALIA, CA (August 23, 2022) — A motorcyclist was rushed to a hospital following a two-vehicle crash on Demaree Street on Friday morning, August 19.
According to the Visalia Police, the collision occurred at around 7:30 a.m. and involved a motorcycle and black Tesla Model Y.
Authorities said the motorcyclist traveled northbound on Demaree Street when it slammed into a black Tesla Model Y that was turning.
The motorcyclist suffered injuries in the crash, prompting police officers to transport the patient to a hospital for treatment. However, authorities did not disclose the severity of the injuries.
