A rider was killed last Friday when his motorcycle collided with an SUV in Newport Beach.

The rider, 25-year-old Patrick Lee of Long Beach, was declared dead at 6:52 pm. According to the Orange County Sheriff-Coroner's Office the incident involved up to seven vehicles and took place at Bristol Street and Campus Drive.

No other serious injuries were reported. The investigation is being handled by Newport Beach police.

Unforunately it's the case that in multi-vehicle accidents, riders may find themselves in extremely vulnerable positions without an easy means for escape. That sounds to have been the fate of our fallen brother in this accident. The Orange County motorcycle accident lawyers here at RiderzLaw offer our deepest condolences to all affected by the accident. Stay safe out there riders
