Suspected Drunk Motorcyclist Blamed for Major Wreck on I-15 Near Winchester

A woman who was a passenger on the motorcycle was run over after she was thrown from the bike, CHP reports.

A 63-year-old Menifee man suspected of riding his motorcycle drunk on Interstate 15 crashed, causing his passenger to slide across a lane where a sedan ran over her, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The motorcyclist, whose name was not released, was nearing Winchester Road Saturday when traffic was congested and began riding between lanes. The motion apparently caused the rider to lose control as his motorcycle fell and his passenger was ejected, the CHP reported.

The passenger, 43, also of Menifee, slid across the slow lane where a Honda Accord ran over her. The motorcyclist crashed his bike into a Kenworth dump truck and suffered major injuries to one of his arms, according to the CHP.

The crashed was reported at 3:03 p.m.

The passenger was taken to Inland Valley Medical Center where she was listed in critical condition. The motorcyclist was treated for his injuries and was arrested on suspicion of felonious drunken driving, CHP officials said.

I was wondering where you were. We had a few Brenda-ish names pop up--but didn't "seem" like you. You can usually start to tell who's who by the style and pattern of their typing after awhile. Glad to know you were just taking a break. You have a heck of a lot to get caught up on---along with the usual "drama!" welcome back! :o)

Anyone know whatever happened to the woman in this crash? I saw her immediately after and she looked dead as can be. I was surprised to hear she survived the crash now I am curious if she survived her injuries....
