Motorcyclist hurt in collision north of Bodega Bay

A motorcyclist from Vallejo was seriously injured Saturday when he broadsided an SUV making a U-turn on Highway 1 north of Bodega Bay.

Michael Talken, 61, was riding his 2000 Buell in the 6000 block of Highway 1 north of Bodega Bay when 30-year-old Haley O'Connors of Santa Rosa pulled off the roadway and did a U-turn, CHP officer Nenad Gorenek said.

Talken was airlifted to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital with major injuries including broken ribs, internal injuries and an injury to his knee, Gorenek said.

O'Connors was uninjured in the accident and was not issued a citation.
