A motorcyclist was transported to a nearby hospital Tuesday night after colliding with another vehicle on the intersection of McBean Parkway and Magic Mountain Parkway, according to law enforcement officials.
Watch Sgt. Bill Edson of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station said deputies responded to a call for a vehicle collision at approximately 7:58 p.m. According to reports from responding deputies, the motorcyclist collided with another vehicle at the intersection, but it is unknown what led to the collision.
Michael Pittman, supervising dispatcher for the Los Angeles County Fire Department, said emergency personnel arrived at the scene around the same time as deputies. Emergency personnel transported the motorcyclist via ambulance to a nearby hospital.
Both Edson and Pittman confirmed the motorcyclist needed medical attention, but the extent of the individual’s injuries was unknown.
Kathleen Biggs, a Valencia resident, wrote to The Signal after Tuesday night’s vehicle collision. She said she was first in line in the left turn lanes from Magic Mountain Parkway to McBean Parkway when the collision occurred.
According to Biggs, it looked like the car turned left into the motorcycle, which was traveling northbound on McBean Parkway.
Biggs wrote that she had just pulled up to the light when there was a screech of brakes and a big thud. Then when she looked up to see what the commotion was the motorist stopped on the northbound lane of McBean Parkway and the motorcyclist was on the ground.
“I jumped out and helped the motorcyclist take his helmet off,” Biggs wrote in an email. “He was moaning, in pain, but conscious.”
