SAN DIEGO MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT LAWYER REPORT: The San Diego motorcycle accident attorneys at Riderz Law have an unfortunate motorcycle crash to report from Chula Vista. Last Saturday evening, a 35-year-old motorcyclist suffered critical injuries when his motorcycle collided with an SUV.
According to local authorities, the accident occurred at approximately 5pm at the intersection of Palomar Street and Industrial Boulevard. The driver of a Jeep Liberty made a left-hand turn onto Industrial Boulevard – right in front of the oncoming motorcyclist. The motorcyclist, riding a late-model Harley Davidson, could not avoid a collision, striking the SUV broadside and throwing him from his bike. The motorcyclist suffered severe injuries and was rushed to UCSD Medical Center, where he was treated and currently listed in critical condition. Our thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery go out to this rider and his family.
As motorcycle accident lawyers, we see accidents like this all too often. Drivers fail to pay attention to oncoming motorcyclists at intersections, and turn right in front of them, causing serious injury or worse. As motorcyclists ourselves, we know that intersections are particularly dangerous for us riders, and require constant lookout for inattentive drivers. Ride smart and ride safe.
