SAN DIEGO: The San Diego motorcycle accident lawyers at Riderz Law are sorry to report a motorcycle accident that happened last week in the Pacific Beach area. According to San Diego police, the 25-year-old rider was traveling southbound on Ingraham Street at Diamond Street. A 30-year-old driver of a Kia was traveling northbound on Ingraham and was attempting to make a left turn onto westbound Diamond. The Kia driver turned directly into the path of the motorcyclist, and the bike and car collided. The motorcyclist was severely injured in the accident and was rushed to a local hospital with life threatening injuries. Further details regarding the accident and the motorcyclist’s injuries are not yet available. Our thoughts and prayers are with this rider and his family.
As motorcycle accident attorneys, we see accidents like this all too often. Drivers fail to notice motorcyclists and frequently do not look close enough at oncoming traffic before executing dangerous turns. 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.
