The accident on Rose Canyon Road at Trabuco Canyon Road happened about noon, said Orange County Fire Authority Capt. Marc Stone. It shut down traffic for about two hours as Station 18 of the OCFA responded and California Highway Patrol investigated.
The driver of the motorcycle lost control on an S-turn and the unidentified woman slipped off the bike and under a large truck, Stone said. She was taken to Mission Hospital in Mission Viejo with life-threatening injuries, he said.
It wasn't clear who had been steering the motorcycle, Stone said.
