A motorcycle crash in Westminster last Monday killed one and left another injured.

The incident happened around 9 pm at the intersection of Edwards St and Royal Oak Dr, near the Westminster Mall.

The sportbike reportedly ran into the back of an asphalt truck that was leaving All American Asphalt at 14490 Edwards St. One of the riders was pronounced dead on-scene while the other was taken to UCI Medical Center with major injuries.

Tragic events like this remind us motorcycle riders that danger often lies in the slowest of packages. I for one have caught myself riding up much too quickly on large trucks, not expecting anything on the road to be traveling at such a low speed, which additionally creates a low visibility road block. The Orange County motorcycle accident lawyers here at RiderzLaw offer our sincerest condolences to those affected by this tragic event, and wish a speedy recovery to the injured rider.
