California man fatally injured in motorcycle accident

The speed at which an accident involving a motorcycle occurs, combined with the fact that the motorcyclist has no barrier between him or her and another car on the road, can produce fatal consequences for a motorcyclist. This was the tragic situation for a young man in California, who as a result of a motorcycle accident, lost his life.

The accident involved several vehicles that were being driven on the 5 Freeway in Burbank. The motorcycle driver apparently rear-ended a car, sending him off of his bike and into the road. He was then struck by two other cars, which was the apparent cause of death. 

Another motorcycle crashed into the victim’s bike and that female victim suffered minor injuries.

With multiple parties involved in a motorcycle accident, it can be difficult for investigators to ascertain the cause or causes of the incident. Authorities arrested the driver of the car that was rear-ended in the fatal crash, however it was not immediately reported whether that driver will face criminal charges.

Situations such as this can be devastating for the families involved. An investigation may shed more light onto the circumstances surrounding the fatal motorcycle accident, and the parties involved do have rights that should be protected.

The dangers involved with riding a motorcycle are always present, but this does not excuse negligent driving by those sharing the roads with motorcyclists. It is a good idea to speak with an attorney if you or loved one has been in an accident involving a motorcycle in order to help ensure you understand your rights.
