A Davis man was one of four people injured Sunday when a motorcycle struck three pedestrians along the Sacramento River, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The accident occurred at about 5 p.m. on Old River Road south of County Road 126 near West Sacramento, where motorcyclist Stanley James Kolar of Sacramento was unable to negotiate a turn in the road, Officer Bryan Konvalin said.
Kolar ran off the roadway, where he was ejected from his Harley Davidson. The motorcycle rolled over and continued in a westerly direction, striking three people on the roadside who were taking pictures of the sunset, Konvalin said.
Kolar, 65, suffered lacerations and blunt-force trauma to his head. Pedestrian Kelsie Schinley, 23, of Marysville, had lacerations and complaints of pain, while 20-year-old Allen Lichaa of Davis and 24-year-old Cody Caldwell of Marysville also complained of pain, Konvalin said.
All four were taken to the UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento for treatment.
