SAN DIEGO: The San Diego motorcycle accident lawyers at Riderz Law are sorry to report a motorcycle accident that happened Saturday, June 3, 2017 leaving one rider dead and another injured. According to authorities, a sedan rear-ended two motorcyclists on Winter Gardens Blvd at Gay Rio Dr. One of the riders was killed at the scene, and the other was rushed to a nearby hospital. The driver of the sedan was also injured and taken to a hospital. Further details regarding the accident and the motorcyclist’s injuries are not yet available. Our thoughts and prayers are with the riders and their families.
As motorcycle accident attorneys, we see accidents like this all too often. Drivers fail to notice motorcyclists on the roadway and do stop in time to avoid the motorcyclist in front of them. In many instances, drivers fail to see motorcyclists until after they crash into them. Imagine the force generated from a car traveling 60 miles an hour into the back of a motorcyclist-without even braking. 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 Diego motorcycle accident attorneys at Riderz Law implore you to ride smart and ride safe.
