The answer is S52.201A, V28.1zzA

Rationale: The Alphbetic Index main term is Fracture, traumatic, subterm ulna, resulting in code S52.201 with a seventh character of "A". The Alphabetic Index of External Causes main term is Accident, subterms transport, motorcyclist, passenger, noncollision accident, nontraffic, resulting in V28.1 with a seventh character of "A".
