On Wednesday, August 3, a man was injured in an Oceanside, California motorcycle accident as he attempted to “split lanes.”
The man, Justin Beyerl, 22, a Marine stationed at Camp Pendleton, was hospitalized with a compound fracture to his right leg after the motorcycle he was driving hit a stopped car.
According to the California Highway Patrol Officer Chris Parent, Beyerl, on his 2005 Honda Shadow, was cruising westbound at 7:20 a.m. on state Route 78 when he encountered stopped traffic just west of Jefferson Street. Beyerl then began to “split lanes” at 70-75 mph, and clipped the rear of a Ford Taurus.
Parent said Beyerl was ejected during the impact; however, the motorcycle continued to “split the lanes” for another 500 feet without touching another vehicle. The motorcycle finally fell over and hit two cars.
