Mesa motorcyclist injured while dodging road debris
Borne said he knew he couldn't dodge the mattresses so he dropped his bike to the side and let it slide.
"I just knew I'd go head first if I hit it, so I just slid. I could see sparks flying from my bike like, right at me. I could feel my hand and my arm just dragging, it was pretty painful," said Borne. "It felt like sandpaper that was extremely hot scraping against my skin, just one long motion," he added.
