At around 7:20 p.m. last night a motorcyclist was seriously injured in a hit-and-run accident in San Marcos. The motorcycle rider lost control of his bike on Montiel Road while trying to avoid a collision with a vehicle that turned in front of him. While skidding out, a Dodge pickup turning left off of Montiel ran him over and then fled the scene. Police later apprehended him. Authorities have asked anyone with information about this accident to call (760) 510-5049, explains a California injury lawyer.
