July 20, 2014- A Santa Paula man was injured in a motorcycle accident near Dinosaur Point, west of Los Banos. The vehicle collision took place on Highway 152, on Sunday, at about 4:15 AM.
Joseph Hermosillo, of Santa Paula, was traveling east on his 2002 Harley Davidson, on Highway 152. The Harley drifted onto the shoulder of the highway and hit a raised curb.
Hermosillo was thrown from the bike onto the right shoulder, and the motorcycle came to rest in the fast lane of the freeway. The Harley was then hit by a 2008 Nissan car, driven by Victor Marquez, of Los Banos.
Marquez lost control of the Nissan after it collided with the motorcycle, and the vehicle swerved onto the right shoulder and smashed into a rock embankment.
Joseph Hermosillo suffered serious injuries, and was taken to Memorial Hospital in Los Banos. Victor Marquez sustained minor injuries and did not need medical attention.
