It is possible that many drivers will spend hours in their vehicle without coming across any accidents or other potential dangerous conditions. However, when they do come across an accident, for example, it is necessary to take additional caution while driving through the area. Unfortunately, a woman assisting at a fatal motorcycle accident was recently injured by another vehicle.
The incident happened during the early morning hours of a day May. According to reports, a motorcyclist was headed west on a California roadway when an eastbound driver of a pickup truck allegedly attempted a left turn into the former’s path. Reports indicate that the motorcyclist was underneath the pickup truck at some point but was helped by bystanders.
Unfortunately, one of the bystanders, a woman, was struck by another westbound vehicle. She was transported to the hospital with major injuries; the driver that allegedly struck her is said to have remained at the scene. The motorcyclist died at the scene. It is unclear if the driver of the pickup truck was injured. Police are asking anyone who witnessed the accident to contact them.
One family is now facing the unexpected loss of their family member as a result of the California motorcycle accident. Additionally, a woman may now face a lengthy recovery. Both may experience financial distress as a result. Because of this, they may choose to file a wrongful death and personal injury lawsuit, respectively, if it is determined that their injuries were caused by the negligence of another. An attorney with experience with both types of case can help them fully understand their options.
