A motorcyclist overshot his intended lane and collided with a moving vehicle Thursday afternoon near Walmart.
According to Price City Police Officer Stephen Regruto, Dillen Vasquez of Price was pulling out of the Walmart parking lot traveling northbound when he drifted into the adjacent lane and collided with a vehicle driven by Chari Swenson of Price.
Regruto said Vasquez ran into the vehicle’s passenger-side door and tumbled to the ground landing on his arms.
вЂњIt could have been a lot worse,вЂќ Regruto said. вЂњHe didnвЂ™t even need a band aid, so he was lucky.вЂќ
Regruto said Vasquez suffered a small amount of road rash on his elbows. The motorcycle wasnвЂ™t quite as lucky as some lights were broken during the accident.
вЂњWith any type of accident, safety is our main concern,вЂќ Regruto said. вЂњEspecially if you are on a motorcycle. If youвЂ™re going to be on a bike you should have some type of safety equipment. You should be wearing a helmet.вЂќ
