A PCH motorcycle crash involving a motorcycle and a passenger car resulted in serious injuries and the northbound lanes of the Pacific Coast Highway being shutdown.

According to the Los Angeles Fire Department, the incident occurred around 11:30 am on Sunday, July 26 in the Pacific Palisades area (about 3 miles north of Santa Monica).

The male and female riders of the motorcycle were rushed to a nearby hospital with serious injuries. The passengers of the car (also a male and female) declined treatment by paramedics. They were allowed to leave the scene of the incident.

No mention of at-fault parties or charges/citations was made. Given that the passengers of the car were released, it’s implied they are not facing charges.

All-too-often, leisurely Sunday rides take tragic turns for the worse. The riders in this instance were lucky to come away with their lives – the victims in many of the cases our firm deals with cannot say the same.

The Los Angeles motorcycle lawyers here at RiderzLaw wish a speedy recovery to the victims of this incident. We urge all our readers to please, be safe out on the roadways and keep your eyes open for motorcyclists around you.
