Motorcyclist Ejected on Panoramic Highway, but OK

A driver was making a U-turn on a curved spot on the road and a motorcyclist couldn't stop in time.

Two Mill Valley residents were involved in a minor collision Saturday on Panoramic Highway, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Just west of Edgewood Avenue, Robert Hatfield, 66, drove is 1993 Toyota MR2 sports car into a pullout spot along a curved section of the road and began to make a U-turn from westbound to eastbound, according to CHP Sgt. Marcus Bartholomew. It was 6:20 p.m., right just when Eruch McCoy, 24, was approaching the spot on his 2004 Kawasaki KLR650 motorcycle.

The Toyota was halfway through the U-Turn and McCoy couldn't stop in time. He slammed into the driver's side of Hatfield's car and was ejected onto its hood. He landed on the roadway.

McCoy complained of minor injuries but declined help from paramedics. The CHP is investigating the collision.
