SAN DIEGO: The San Diego motorcycle accident lawyers at Riderz Law are sorry to report a motorcycle accident that happened last week in the Mira Mesa area. According to San Diego police, at approximately 5:35 a.m. on Thursday, August 24, 2017, a 28-year-old bicyclist, travelling east on Mira Mesa Blvd began to execute a left turn from the right lane at Parkdale Ave, against a red left turn light. A 56-year-old motorcyclist was also traveling eastbound on Mira Mesa straight through the intersection with a green light. The bicyclist moved into the path of the motorcyclist, and they collided. Both parties sustained life threatening injuries and were transported to local hosptials. Our thoughts and prayers are with these two men and their friends and families.
As motorcycle accident attorneys, we see accidents like this all too often. It is imperative for both bicyclists and motorcyclists to be extremely vigilant on the roads. 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.
