ESCONDIDO: The Escondido motorcycle accident lawyers at Riderz Law are sorry to report a motorcycle accident that happened on February 23, 2017 in the Escondido area. According to Escondido Police, a 2002 Honda CBR was traveling northbound on Broadway when he struck an SUV turning left onto Leslie Lane. The motorcyclist was severely injured in the accident and was rushed to a local hospital. The SUV overturned in the crash, but the driver avoided injury. Alcohol or drugs are not considered factors in this collision. Further details regarding the accident and the motorcyclist’s injuries are not yet available. Our thoughts and prayers are with this rider and his family.
As motorcycle accident attorneys, we see accidents like this all too often. Drivers fail to notice motorcyclists in the oncoming lane and frequently misjudge their speed. In many instances, drivers fail to see motorcyclists until after they crash into them. Sadly, even the most careful riders cannot always avoid accidents like this. Motorcyclists can reduce the risk of such accidents, however, by taking a good motorcycle safety course, wearing bright and/or reflective clothing and equipment, and riding defensively.
As always, the Escondido motorcycle accident attorneys at Riderz Law implore you to ride smart and ride safe.
