As the officer approached the intersection, a 27-year-old Escondido woman driving a 2000 Honda Civic northbound on Palo Alto Court turned left onto westbound Borden Road in front of Byrd’s motorcycle, said sheriff’s Sgt. Stephanie Guerra; the motorcycle accident happened seconds later.
After his motorcycle struck the driver’s side of the Civic, Byrd sustained a broken leg, hip injury and laceration to his head, according to Guerra. Though seriously injured, the officer was conscious when an ambulance took him to Palomar Medical Center, said sheriff’s Lt. Jim Walker.
