MERCED MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT LAWYER REPORT: The motorcycle accident attorneys at Riderz Law have a tragic accident to report from Merced. Last Saturday night, 33 year old Merced resident Bee Xiong was killed while riding his motorcycle in a Merced neighborhood on East 20th street. According to local authorities, Xiong was riding his motorcycle at a significant rate of speed through the neighborhood when he collided with a parked truck. The force of the collision threw Xiong from his bike. Police later found Xiong lying in the street dozens of feet from the accident site. Xiong was rushed to nearby Mercy Hospital, but he tragically succumbed to the injuries he sustained from the motorcycle crash. Our thoughts and prayers go out to this fallen rider and his family.
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. Whether it was alcohol, carelessness, or failure to ride within skill level, this motorcycle accident was 100% preventable. As motorcycle accident lawyers who serve Merced and all of California, we unfortunately see tragic accidents like this all too often. As always, we urge our clients and readers to ride smart and stay safe.
