A man was killed this past Monday in San Jose.
The incident took place around 10:50 a.m. at the intersection of Washington Street and North 10th Street.
The rider has not been identified.
The rider, on a 2003 Ducati was traveling southbound on North 10th Street when he collided with a 2002 PT Cruiser traveling eastbound on Washington Street. Washington Street has stop signs, and North 10th Street is considered a through street and does not stop at the intersection.
The rider was throw from the bike after the collision, and landed on the roof of a parked car before falling to the ground. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The collision remains under investigation, and the driver of the PT Cruiser remained at the scene and cooperated with police.
Making a quick trip through town can seem like a relaxed ride where riders are often thinking about other things. Unfortunately, in familiar areas, at slower speeds, it is far too common to find cars also not paying attention, and therefore creating exceptionally dangerous situations. The San Jose motorcycle lawyers here at RiderzLaw offer our deepest, most sincere condolences to all the family and friends affected by this tragedy. We beg you readers to please, look out for yourselves out on the roads.
