Motorcyclist Hospitalized Following Crash

The crash was reported Monday morning on Highway 101 Monday, at the Grand Avenue exit.

A Mountain View man was hospitalized Tuesday following surgery on his leg, broken when his motorbike crashed on a sharp turn during a high-sped chase.

Sandor Alex Szamosi, 51, is facing felony evading charges, as well as alleged driving with a suspended license and misdemeanor marijuana possession, according to CHP Officer Michael Ferguson.

Szamosi allegedly led CHP officers on a chase down the 101 Freeway at speeds reaching more than 100 mph, Ferguson told Patch.

The suspect lost control on a sharp curve at Grand Avenue in South San Francisco and slid onto the grass and dirt roadside, Ferguson said.

He broke his leg just above the ankle, requiring surgery and a long recovery, Ferguson said.

He was not booked into the county jail but the case will be forwarded to the county District Attorney's office, Ferguson told Patch.
