The motorcycle accident attorneys at Riderz Law have a tragic accident to report from Silverado Canyon just south of Los Angeles. On July 7, 2019, four people lost their lives in a crash involving two motorcycles. At around 4:30 p.m. two bikes, both carrying a passenger, heading in opposite directions on Silverado Canyon, collided when one of the riders chose to try to pass a car, crossing a double yellow while in a blind corner. The two biked collided head on, and all four people (2 riders, 2 passengers) died as a result of the crash.
Police are still investigating the crash, and have not stated whether alcohol was a contributing factor. Regardless, this is an accident that never should have happened. Passing another vehicle in a blind corner, regardless of how slow they are moving, is extremely dangerous and illegal. This motorcycle accident was 100% preventable.
