SAN DIEGO COUNTY MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT LAWYER REPORT: The motorcycle accident attorneys at Riderz Law have a tragic accident to report from San Diego. On August 17, 2016 58-year-old Rohn Elsner was riding his 2005 Kawasaki motorcycle in the 11900 block of Wildcat Canyon. He attempted to pass a car in front of him, but struck the car in the process, which caused him to veer off the roadway. The bike hit an embankment, which ejected Elsner back onto the roadway into the path of an oncoming commercial truck. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
