Robert Sinclair of Santa Fe County remains in critical condition in a Santa Fe Hospital after he lost control of his motorcycle Thursday afternoon in front of Pojoaque High School.
Lieutenant Joe McLaughlin of the Santa Fe Sheriff’s Office said Tuesday morning that he remained hospitalized. McLaughlin said their office received a call at 4:24 p.m. Thursday and he reported Sinclair was traveling east on NM 502 and attempted to make a left-hand turn onto County Road 101 East.
“For reasons unknown, he lost control of his bike and the bike went down and he was ejected from the seat,” McLaughlin said. “He sustained some pretty extensive head injuries. He was transported to St. Vincent’s (in Santa Fe) and admitted to the ICU.”
McLaughlin said Sinclair was wearing a helmet and alcohol did not appear to be a factor in the crash. McLaughlin said it was a single-vehicle crash, adding “he did not hit anybody and was not hit by anybody.”
The cause is still under investigation. “We have not interviewed him because of his condition,” McLaughlin said. “And we really can’t do a whole lot until we talk to him. Until his condition improves, our hands are tied.”
