A dirt bike rider was airlifted to a hospital after an accident near Lake Nacimiento on Saturday, the California Highway Patrol said.
The accident happened in a “remote location” near the lime quarry south of the lake, the CHP said in a Facebook post. The person, whose gender was not specified, was riding a dirt bike when they came up short on a jump and crashed, breaking multiple bones.
Because the accident happened in such a remote spot, the rider had to be taken to the helicopter while lying in the bed of a pickup truck.
“Thankfully, the flight to the hospital was quick and easy,” read the Facebook post.
