PASADENA MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT LAWYER REPORT: The motorcycle accident attorneys at Riderz Law have a tragic accident to report from Pasadena. On New Year’s Day, 2017, a 57-year-old motorcyclist was tragically killed while riding his bike. He was traveling south on Fair Oaks Ave at approximately 4:30 a.m. when a BMW X3 turned left in front of the rider. The rider struck the vehicle and was ejected from the bike. The driver of the BMW was identified as Shawn Antonio, and was accused of driving under the influence. This was not his first conviction of DUI. Sadly, the motorcyclist did not survive the collision.
This is an accident that never should have happened.

There are many alternative options available if you find yourself in such a situation. As motorcycle accident lawyers who serve Pasadena 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.
