VICTORVILLE, Calif. (AP) — A California motorcyclist rear-ended a minivan and was hurled through a window into the back seat but was not injured.

Investigators say the minivan driver made a turn after Thursday's collision and drove to his Mojave Desert home a half-block away before discovering he had a new passenger.

The Victorville Daily Press first reported the crash.

Witnesses say the motorcycle crashed and slid under the minivan on a Victorville street and the biker couldn't be found.

Investigators say the minivan slowed or stopped to make a turn and the motorcyclist slammed into the vehicle.

San Bernardino County sheriff's spokeswoman Karen Hunt says the minivan driver had already committed to the turn and drove a short distance to his home. He then discovered the motorcyclist in the back seat.
