A Rancho Palos Verdes man was killed in a crash in San Pedro last Tuesday.

According to Lt. Joe Bale of the Los Angeles County coroner's office, the rider, 27-year-old Kristopher M. Kassabian, was pronounced dead at the site of the crash which occurred on Gunnel Avenue near west 25th Street.

The crash happened just after midnight, when the motorcycle collided with a pickup truck. Mr. Kassabian was ejected from his motorcycle, flying over a wall and into the backyard of an apartment complex.

The investigation, which is ongoing, is being conducted by the Los Angeles Police Department South Traffic Division.

The details of this accident are limited but one thing is for sure, it`s a tragic story of a young rider being taken too soon. Riding at night can often become disconcerting for riders. Something as simple as a helmet shield fogging up can for a moment distract a rider, or just as easily hinder depth perception. In order to regain a handle of your environment, it`s usually best to slow down and recollect yourself before proceeding on into the night. The Los Angeles motorcycle accident lawyers here at RiderzLaw offer our deepest condolences to all those affected by this tragedy. Please readers, be careful on our roadways.
