A husband and wife were injured in a motorcycle hit-and-run crash after a driver who attempted to switch lanes caused their motorcycle to go down.
Although the vehicle did not strike the motorcycle, it caused the riders to fall over. The California Highway Patrol is considering this a hit-and-run crash because the other person drove away, leaving the victims injured on the ground.
Ruben Borne and his wife Kathleen Jurski were visiting from Florida and were on the 105 Freeway on their way to LAX to return the rental motorcycle. Jerski caught the encounter on her GoPro camera.

The driver of the vehicle attempted to switch into the right lane, causing the accident and then ran over Borne’s leg, who suffered a fractured ankle.
Jerski is also suffering from road rash injuries.
“What kind of a person leaves two people laying on the side of the freeway after causing an accident,” said Borne.
The couple were wearing protective gear, which Borne says likely saved their lives.
