A Bay Point man received major injuries Thursday morning in a three-vehicle crash on Highway 12, between Flag City and Tower Park Marina, according to the California Highway Patrol.
Gregory L. Robinson, 59, was driving a 2000 Harley Davidson motorcycle west on Highway 12 east of Peatland Road at about 11:20 a.m. when he passed two vehicles, CHP Officer Angel Arceo said.
Robinson tried to pass a third vehicle, a 2008 Isuzu box truck, but he saw an oncoming truck driven by a 19-year-old Lodi man, Arceo said. Robinson swerved back into the westbound lane, but he rear-ended the Isuzu. The crash knocked Robinson back into the eastbound lane, where he was struck by a 2003 Chevrolet Silverado driven by Jett A. Miller, 19, of Lodi, Arceo said.
Robinson was taken to Kaiser Hospital in South Sacramento.
Miller and the driver of the Isuzu, Thomas M. Cadman, 63, of Fair Oaks, were not injured.
Officers are investigating whether alcohol contributed to the crash, Arceo said.
