MONTEREY MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT LAWYER REPORT: The motorcycle accident attorneys at Riderz Law have a tragic accident to report from Monterey. On Thursday, July 6, 2017 a 58-year-old rider was on his Goldwing motorcycle traveling on Carmel Valley Road. A pickup truck driving the other direction had a vehicle stop in their lane, and the driver of the F-250, 68-year-old Kenneth Donahue, swerved to avoid hitting the car, over corrected, and went into the east bound lane, broadsiding the Goldwing. The rider died due to the injuries sustained from the collision.
