Yes. I was coming from Livermore to the San Ramon Road exit on 580 Westbound. I was in the far left lane from 6:40 - 7 something. We were stopped. I passed the accident at very close range. I saw, in the left lane, a male on a stretcher, motionless, taped up. His shirt was removed or cut away. He had blood all over him but it had been sponged away, somewhat. His arms seemed to be taped or strapped or wrapped to his torso and the stretcher. His head also seemed to be wrapped so that it was facing straight up. He was very pale and still. He appeared to be lifeless. He was very close to traffic and nobody was attending to him as far as medically. Police were busy with the cones. I saw no ER ppl there, but a Firetruck was on the scene...most likely the ppl who had prepped the body for removal. The facial expressions on the cops was quite dour, depressed and stressed. Very somber. No sense of anything except to get the traffic back on track and to get this man taken care of. They were sad and looked helpless and stressed. What a job they have! I looked right at them because I saw the body and knew why he was strapped that way. They looked back at me as well. I was kind of trapped with them for a few moments as they moved cones to let cars into traffic. My window was down. I was only feet away from it all. The motorcycle was really far up ahead also in the left lane. I saw no other cars associated with the accident. the cycle looked in good condition. A cop car was up there and he seemed to be photographing and tagging it. I came home and checked the CHP report which said this: "6:46 Solo MC TC into CD. Major Injuries. Motorcycle way up 200 yards under Hac Overpass." I think that means that there was a solo motorcyclist traffic collision into the center divide with code for fatality. Did he come from the bridge above? The opposite side? Or from the same stream of traffic I was in? I don't know where to look these things up.
