An Orangevale man was hospitalized Sunday after he was involved in an accident on Horseshoe Bar Road near Val Verde Road.

California Highway Patrol spokesperson Dave Martinez said Marel Pardo, of Orangevale, was riding a 2009 Moto Guzzi motorcycle when a Ford pick-up truck heading in the opposite direction made a lefthand turn in front of him.

Martinez said Pardo was forced to “lay the bike down” and no contact was made with the truck, but the driver suffered injuries in the fall.

He said Pardo was unconscious for a time and was transported to a local hospital with what appeared to be minor injuries.

Martinez said the truck was driven by a Loomis juvenile, who was turning into a private driveway and the motorcycle was not visible to him.
