SAN DIEGO: The San Diego motorcycle accident lawyers at Riderz Law are sorry to report a motorcycle accident that happened last week in the San Diego area. According to sources, a motorcycle traveling westbound on Governor Drive at approximately 5:45 p.m. The 16-year-old driver of a car, who had a learner’s permit but was alone in the vehicle (a violation of his permit) was traveling eastbound and attempted to turn onto northbound Lipmann Street, across the path of the oncoming motorcyclist. The rider, who was a 21-year-old male, suffered a serious injury to his leg and was transported to local hospital.
As motorcycle accident attorneys, we see accidents like this all too often. Drivers fail to notice motorcyclists on the roadway, and make a left turn across the rider’s path. 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 San Deigo motorcycle accident attorneys at Riderz Law implore you to ride smart and ride safe.
