LOS ANGELES MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT LAWYER REPORT: The motorcycle accident attorneys at Riderz Law have a tragic accident to report from Los Angeles. At approximately 4:20 a.m. on Tuesday, August 29, 2017 a Toyota T100 pickup hit the center divider of the highway and came to rest sidways across the carpool lane. A few minutes later, William (Bill) Judge was traveling in that lane on his Harley Davidson motorcycle and failed to see the truck across the lane until he was unable to avoid it.
