Motorcyclist’s arm severed in freeway crash

BALDWIN PARK — A motorcyclist crashed and severed his arm Saturday on the 605 Freeway in Baldwin Park, authorities said.
The crash occurred about 4:30 p.m. on the southbound 605 Freeway, just south of the 10 Freeway, California Highway Patrol Officer Jaime Rosas said.
For reasons that remained under investigation, he said, “(The motorcyclist) veered to the left, striking the concrete center median wall.”
The injured rider, a 56-year-old Santa Ana man, was hospitalized at Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center, where doctors expected him to survive and were working to reattach his arm, officials said.

    I drove by this accident right after it happened. There was an officer on scene already and witnesses had wrapped up the man’s arm. As I drove by I could hear the poor man moaning in pain.
