Teens Injured in Northern California Motorcycle Crash

The families of two teens know all too well the damage a driver can do to a motorcycle in a crash.  On Sunday, according to a report in the Press Democrat, two 15-year-old boys were injured in a motorcycle crash in Clearlake.  Police believe that a man in a pickup truck followed behind a car as it crossed a double yellow line and attempted to pass the motorcycle carrying the teens.  When the motorcycle attempted to turn left onto 33rd Avenue, the truck slammed into the bike and both boys were thrown off the motorcycle.  The motorcycle passenger incurred major injuries and was taken to a hospital via helicopter.  The motorcycle’s driver suffered moderate injuries and was taken to St. Helena Hospital for treatment.

Most drivers have seen the bumper stickers that read: “Look Twice Save a Life – Motorcycles Are Everywhere.”  Tragically, many drivers fail to heed this warning.  Motorcycle accidents and motorcycle fatalities are far too common and often a careless or inattentive driver is to blame.  As an Oakland motorcycle accident attorney, Greg Brod advocates for riders and families whose lives are forever altered because of a driver’s negligence.

Two Motorcycle Rider Killed in Highway 113 Crash

CBS SF reports that two motorcycle riders died after a crash on Highway 113 near Dixon this past Saturday.  At around 6:48 PM, California Highway Patrol officers were called to the scene of an accident near Hay Road in unincorporated Solano County.  Police believe that a 36-year-old woman was making a left turn in a 2010 Dodge Charger and failed to yield the right of way to two oncoming motorcyclists.  The riders, who were travelling at around 55mph on separate motorcycles, crashed into the car and both were ejected from their bikes.

Motorcycle riders are passionate about their love for two wheels.  Some cite the power and beauty of the machines themselves, some cite riding as a lower cost alternative to driving, others like feeling in touch with the road and the world around them.  For most, it is probably all the above.  Motorcycle riders deserve to be safe, but motorcycle fatalities and serious rider injuries are far too common.  Our Oakland motorcycle injury law firm is committed to advocating for riders and their loved ones when motorcycle crashes are caused by negligent, inattentive drivers.
