Three motorcycles and a pick-up truck were involved in a collision on Highway 243 1 mile north of Round Robin Drive on Saturday, Oct. 4, according to California Highway Patrol Officer Darren Meyer, resulting in major and minor injures.
Three motorcycles were traveling southbound when the first crossed over the double-yellow line and collided head-on with a white Chevy pick-up. The following two motorcycles went down.
Diamond Schiffers, 43, of Florida, riding a 2012 Yamaha duel-sport, hit Michael Kalmutzki’s pick-up. Mercy Air took her to the Desert Regional Medical Center with serious injuries involving fractures. Kalmutzki, 52, of Pinyon Hills, was uninjured.
Tony Lawson, 37, of Washington, complained of pain after her 2011 Harley-Davidson went down, but she was not transported.
Dawn Schoemaker, 48, also of Washington, also crashed her 2009 Yamaha VStar but was uninjured.
Meyer said the investigation is continuing with no known cause as to what factors may have contributed to the collision.
