Because of the climate in California, the state often attracts motorcyclists, and they could be on the road at any time. As a result, and because they may be more difficult to see due to their smaller size in comparison to more traditional motor vehicles, drivers must remain vigilant at all times. Unfortunately, a man recently lost his life in a motorcycle accident.
The incident happened one day in late June. According to reports, the 25-year-old male was headed north on a motorcycle. Unfortunately, his motorcycle reportedly struck a sedan that had just turned onto their roadway.
The force of the collision pushed both the motorcycle and sedan into the path of oncoming traffic. There, a sedan struck the motorcycle and its rider. Someone passing by the scene was able to provide CPR until rescue workers arrived; however, the motorcyclist passed away after he was transported to the hospital. The incident remains under investigation, and police are asking anyone with information to contact them.
Although motorcyclists may be more difficult to see in some situations, all users of California roads should be able to safely use the roads without fear of an accident. If someone is injured in a motorcycle accident as a result of the negligence of another driver, he or she has the option of pursuing recompense in a civil court. If the accident is fatal, the victim’s surviving family members have the option of filing a wrongful death lawsuit. While such action will likely do little to help them cope with the emotional ramifications of their loss, knowing that they are able to pay their bills can allow them to focus on their overall recovery.
