Motorcycle Accident Fatally Injures Man Near Modesto
I’m Ed Smith, a Modesto motorcycle accident lawyer. An accident involving a motorcycle and a motor vehicle occurred north of Modesto during the early morning hours of Monday, September 4, 2017. Sadly, the collision claimed the life of a Modesto man.
A 33-year-old Modesto man was riding his motorcycle southbound along Prescott Road in the vicinity of Cheyenne Way just before 3:00 am. At the same time, a Toyota Tacoma pickup truck was traveling westbound along Cheyenne Way. For unknown reasons, the motorcyclist and the pickup truck collided at the intersection.
Was Anybody Injured?
Emergency responders were dispatched to the scene of the motorcycle accident. When they arrived, they located the injured motorcyclist. He was, unfortunately, pronounced deceased at the scene.
Our deepest thoughts and condolences are with the loved ones of the victim that passed away in this tragic motorcycle accident.
Information regarding the cause of the motorcycle accident has not yet been released by authorities. Traffic Collision Reports tend to take one to two weeks to be processed. However, Google Street View content shows that the intersection has traffic lights in all directions. This may indicate that one of the motorists may have ran a red light, which may have caused the collision. It is important to contact an experienced Modesto personal injury lawyer if a victim has passed away in a crash. An experienced attorney can independently investigate the accident scene and study the sequence of events leading to the occurrence to determine liability.
Motorcycle Accident Statistics
A Modesto Accident Statistic Report revealed that there were approximately 46 motorcycle accidents in 2016 alone. A county-wide report concluded that there 143 accidents involving motorcyclists that same year. According to the Insurance Information Institute (III), approximately 88,000 victims suffered injuries and 4,976 victims were fatally injured caused by such accidents in 2015. As a Modesto wrongful death lawyer, I have helped many families who have lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident caused by the negligence of another motorist.
