Swerving van collides with parked motorcycles
March 23, 2010 4:38 PM
At approximately 3 p.m. March 23, a van going down 19th Avenue collided into four motorcycles parked near the Health and Human Services building as the driver avoided a veering car.
"I was in the right lane, and there was a white Honda Civic that came up from behind and was going to hit me, so I veered right and hit the motorcycles," said Ben Seicler, the van's driver. "I don't know what the insurance is going to do because I didn't get hit, and I feel bad that I f***ed those people's stuff up."
One of the four motorcycles was severely damaged, costing $2,000 to $3,000 in repairs, said its owner Nick Shabazian, an SF State business student.
"I'm pissed because it's a vintage bike from the 1970s, and there's only one guy who can work on it, so I don't know if the insurance is going to cover it," Shabazian said.
The other bikes suffered damages such as leaking gas tanks and cracked handlebars, said Officer Mora of the Department of Public Safety.
"Damages are easily over $1,000," said Mora.
Both Shabazian's bike and Siecler's van were towed from the scene around 4 p.m.
