Motorcycle fire blocks lanes on Barnett Road overpass

A burning motorcycle has blocked traffic on Barnett Road's overpass over Interstate 5.

A vehicle hit Wayne McIntosh's 1980 Police Special Harley-Davidson near the intersection of Barnett Road and Stewart Avenue. McIntosh said the motorcycle caught fire in the crash.

The bike was totally destroyed and the persistent flames kept firefighters at the scene.

At about 10:30 a.m. only one lane of Barnett was open while firefighters worked.

McIntosh, sporting a bandage on his hand, said he was fine, but bummed out about the loss.
