Motorcycle Accident Investigation is Underway
The California Highway Patrol is currently investigating the cause of the fatal crash.
Motorcycle accidents can often lead to catastrophic and even devastating results. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s National Center for Statistics and Analysis, approximately 5,286 motorcyclists were killed in the U.S. in 2016 alone. Some of the common causes of motorcycle accidents are distracted driving, speeding, drunk driving, reckless driving, bad weather, wrong-way driving, and failure to observe traffic laws.
Motorcycle riders are more vulnerable to the road’s dangers than passengers of private cars as seat belts, or airbags do not protect them. To avoid sustaining life-threatening injuries and possibly death, motorcycle riders are encouraged to dress appropriately and wear a helmet every time they ride their motorcycle to prevent fatal injuries. Wearing helmets were estimated to be 37% effective in preventing motorcycle deaths.
