BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (AP) - The California Highway Patrol is investigating a collision between a motorcycle and a Kern County sheriff’s patrol car that left the motorcyclist with a broken hip.

CHP Sgt. Sean Crosswhite says the crash happened Friday as a deputy was making a left out of the driveway of the Sheriff’s Office headquarters in Bakersfield.

Crosswhite says it appears the deputy didn’t see the motorcycle because it was traveling behind a pickup pulling a trailer.

A witness says the motorcyclist hit the cruiser’s windshield and flew into the air. The rider was hospitalized with moderate injuries. The deputy was unhurt.

Crosswhite tells KBAK-TV (https://bit.ly/1HB2vfS) it is the responsibility of a driver pulling into traffic to yield the right of way. The investigation is ongoing.
