Hit-and-run motorcycle collision investigation continues

Cities like Los Angeles and Long Beach, California, have the perfect weather for year-round motorcycle use since it seldom rains and the sun is never too hard to find. And while the mild climate encourages motorcycle riders to get out on the road, it can also result in increased motorcycle accident incidents. That is why it is imperative that motorcycle riders protect themselves against serious injuries and issues by seeking the sound legal counsel of an experienced personal injury attorney in the event that they are involved in an accident. Tragically, there was still no closure in a recent fatal motorcycle crash since one of those suspected of being involved in the incident was not yet identified by authorities.

The fatal incident occurred in the early evening of a recent Sunday on Highway 101 N. when the motorcycle rider involved in the accident was reportedly thrown from his bike. California Highway Patrol (CHP) officers suspect that it was at that moment that an SUV hit the motorcycle rider. Prior to being thrown and possibly struck, the 28-year-old motorcycle rider struck a Nissan pickup truck as he was changing lanes, causing him to collide with another pickup truck.

According to authorities, the motorcyclist succumbed to his injuries at the scene of the accident. No other injuries are reported in the case. And while CHP officers had a general description of the man they believe was driving the SUV suspected of striking the accident victim, they were still in the process of identifying him. Because the SUV left the scene of the incident, its role in the fatal accident was still unknown.
