Motorcycle crash leaves one person with life-threatening injuries


Police say a chain-reaction crash in Mission Valley left an El Paso man, 45-year-old Juan Castro Jr., with life-threatening injuries.

According to a news release, three motorcycles and a car were all involved. Investigators believe that a 2007 Scion was driving on Castner Drive and made a left turn onto N. Zaragoza in front of several motorcycles.

Police say one of the motorcycles then collided with the Scion when two others, in an attempt to avoid the crash, also crashed into one another. Other than Castro Jr., all of the other motorists were unharmed. Officials have not yet provided any updates on his condition.

As of Saturday, no charges had been filed. The case remains open for investigation.
