Woman: A biker hit her truck, “the motorcycle collapsed” | News
As Charlene Tenorio was driving home Saturday in Barrigada Heights from her horse ranch in Yigo in her black Ford Ranger, she turned into a street on Route 16 near Commercial Tire in Barrigada.
She said a man on a motorbike hit the back of her truck.
The Guam Fire Department said the crash resulted in serious injuries, but no details about the crash or the extent of the injuries it caused have been released.
The crash temporarily closed northbound and southbound lanes and motorists were redirected, according to the Guam Police Department.
Tenorio said he noticed a police car chasing the motorcycle and it accelerated before colliding with his vehicle.
“Literally, his motorcycle collapsed. He landed on the street about 100 feet ahead and was lying on the ground,” Tenorio said.
She said the man had no helmet and was wearing shorts and sandals.
She said she spoke to the chief police officer who was chasing the man on a motorbike after an ambulance arrived at the scene. She said she was told she was not at fault.
“I was a bit shaken. Not physically – I was fine because he hit the back end and I had my seat belt on – but I’m a bit upset emotionally,” Tenorio said.
