San Francisco, CA – Motorcycle Accident on Highway 101 Leads to Injuries
San Francisco, CA (March 8, 2019) – On Thursday morning, around 8:05 a.m., police responded to a motorcycle accident that led to injuries in one party on Highway 101, who has since been identified as Kenneth Linquist.
The accident took place in the northbound lanes of the highway when Linquist was suddenly struck by another vehicle. An unidentified party in a white Ford F-150 struck Linquist and then sped away from the scene. Linquist was left in pain lying on the highway in this ghastly hit-and-run crash.
When authorities and paramedics arrived at the scene of the accident, they found Linquist in the roadway and rushed him to the hospital with back pains. He was treated and is expected to recover.
However, police have not been able to identify the suspect in the truck. When he or she is found, they will be booked on hit-and-run charges.
An investigation into the accident continues at this time.
Above all else, we would like to take this time to extend our sincere sympathies to Kenneth Linquist, with the hopes that he will be able to receive a full recovery from his injuries.
