An off-duty Federal Air Marshall crashed his motorcycle Sunday afternoon on Marsh Creek Road, and during the crash, his gun fell onto the roadway, according to the Clayton Police Department.
The man suffered severe leg injuries, but he’s expected to survive.
A witness who wrote to Claycord.com says he saw a couple of motorcyclists racing from Clayton Community Park just a few minutes before the collision….
My wife and I saw a couple of motorcyclists leaving Clayton Community Park going north on Marsh Creek Road towards Concord. They were racing at a high speed and a few minutes later we caught up to a debris of motorcycle parts and a small collection of concerned motorist.
Not sure exactly how the accident occurred but one of the motorcycle drivers was on the side of the road moving but being told to lay down. His buddy was on the side of the road for a bit but then took off – nice guy! A gun was found in the middle of the road and an off-duty Berkeley officer secured the gun while we waited for fire and law enforcement to arrive.
Thanks to the anonymous Claycordian who sent the information & the photo.
