Motorcycle accidents -- Young Californian man loses his life

A Californian man, age 26, lost his life in a multi-vehicle accident that happened on a recent Wednesday in January. The accident is just another example of the devastation motorcycle accidents can cause. Bikers have so little chance when an accident between a biker and another vehicle happens.

The biker and a driver in a sedan were both traveling west on a boulevard in Los Banos. A 55-year-old driver made a left turn into the boulevard they were traveling on, resulting in a collision between the three vehicles. The accident happened at approximately 12:30 p.m.  

The 26-year-old driver of the sedan suffered minor injuries and was taken to a hospital in the area. The first responders to the accident scene used CPR on the young biker, but to no avail. He was declared dead at the accident scene. The accident is under investigation. No one has been arrested, and police do not believe that alcohol or drugs were factors in the accident, but nothing has been said about speed.

The motorcycle accident is the third fatal accident on this stretch of road since Christmas Eve, when a 66-year-old female died in an alleged drunk driving accident. The suspected DUI driver suffered serious injuries. The day after Christmas, a young woman in her twenties died after the vehicle she was traveling in as a passenger rolled. Speed appears to have played a role in this accident.

In all three cases, the families of the Californian victims may choose to file civil claims against the alleged negligent drivers. Civil law allows for the legal estate of deceased victims of vehicle or motorcycle accidents to file a wrongful death claim. A successfully litigated claim may result in an award for financial damages.
