Bay Area Man Seriously Injured In Motorcycle Crash In Trinity County

A man from Pleasanton suffered major injuries in a crash in Trinity County Saturday. Shortly after 11AM 58-year-old Gill Thomas was northbound on Highway 3 a couple of miles north of Highway 36 on a brand new BMW motorcycle when he lost control on a curve and went down a steep embankment. Rescuers set up a pulley system to get Gill back up the bank. He was transported to Hayfork Airport and then flown to Mercy Hospital in Redding with multiple broken bones in his legs and possible internal injuries.
