A motorcyclist hit a minivan in Watsonville, CA Thursday afternoon, amputating the biker’s leg. According to the news article, “it’s unclear who was at fault.”
Below is the view from Bottius Street; the minivan driver pulled out from that stop sign to turn onto Lincoln. Note the stop sign that the van driver had. The motorcyclist was approaching from the left on Lincoln Street and clearly had the right of way. Witnesses say neither party was speeding.
