NEWPORT BEACH MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT LAWYER REPORT: The motorcycle accident attorneys at Riderz Law have a tragic accident to report from Newport Beach. Costa Mesa resident Todd A. Davis, Jr, a 26-year-old rider, lost his life in Newport Beach. He was riding his 2014 Yamaha FZ-09 on northbound Irvine Ave, when the driver of a Mazda CX-5, who was travelling southbound on Irvine, began a left turn onto Orchard Dr. The Mazda turned into the path of the oncoming motorcyclist, who struck the car and was ejected, suffering critical injuries. He was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.
Police are still investigating the crash, although they say it does not appear that alcohol or drugs were a factor in the collision. Regardless, this is an accident that never should have happened.
