UPDATE: North Highlands man seriously injured in Citrus Heights crash

A Shasta Lake man is in custody following a hit-and-run collision in Citrus Heights that left a motorcyclist with major injuries, according to police.

Westbound Greenback Lane between Sunrise Boulevard and Birdcage Street was closed for about five hours while police investigated the collision, which occurred just before 12:30 p.m.

A van collided with a motorcycle and then fled the scene, according to a Citrus Heights Police Department news release. The van was located a few blocks away in a parking lot in the area of Sunrise and Sun Hill Drive, but the driver was gone. Police later located the suspected driver, identified as Adam McGue, 30, of Shasta Lake. He was arrested on suspicion of hit and run with injury.

The motorcyclist, identified by police as Nicholas Solano, 23, of North Highlands, was taken to Mercy San Juan Medical Center in critical condition.

The collision is still under investigation. Police said it appears that an eastbound vehicle changed lanes, traveling into the path of the van. The driver of the van took evasive action and went into the westbound lanes of Greenback, into the path of the motrocycle, which struck the van, according to the news release. Police said there is no indication that the motorcycle was traveling at high speed.

Police are looking for possible witnesses in a landscaping truck that was pulling a trailer eastbound on Greenback but was not involved in the collision.

Anyone with information about this collision is asked to call police at (916) 727-5500 and ask for traffic investigator William Gregersen.
