The motorist, Lancaster resident Estrella Pascua Sales, 75, was treated and released from the scene, according to a California Highway Patrol news release.
The crash happened around 9:30 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 20, on 10th Street West, south of Avenue M-8.
Sales was driving a 1995 Nissan Altima east out of the Time Warner Cable parking lot in the 41500 block of 10th Street West when the collision occurred, according to the CHP news release.
“Mrs. Sales failed to clear oncoming traffic from 10th Street West and pulled out of the parking lot directly into the path of the CHP officer. As a result both vehicles collided,” the news release states. “The CHP officer was ejected from the motorcycle and sustained moderate injuries.”
The CHP officer, a 33-year-old Lancaster man, was transported by ambulance to Antelope Valley Hospital, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff Department’s Palmdale Station is handling the investigation. It was unclear if the motorist was cited in connection with the crash.
