Four people were critically injured and three others sustained minor injuries when a pickup truck rammed into a motorcycle. The accident resulted into the crash of five more motorcycles that were moving in the same direction.
The accident occurred Saturday 16th April 2016 near Irwindale Avenue according to the reports from California highway patrol officials who were the first to reach the accident site. The crash occurred at around 7pm on Saturday night in the west of the Irwindale Avenue.
