Deadly Motorcycle Accident Near Fairfield
On Saturday, October 24, 2020, one person sadly passed away after suffering injuries during a motorcycle accident near Fairfield. California Highway Patrol (CHP) reported that the accident happened shortly after sunset in a rural area of Solano and only involved one vehicle. Solano County officials have identified the motorcyclist as Michael Miller Sr, a 57-year-old man from Fairfield. The cause of the incident is under active investigation.
The collision reportedly occurred at around 8:00 p.m. on Mankas Corner road to the west of the intersection located at Ledgewood Road. Miller was driving a Harley Davidson motorcycle on Mankas just east of Fairfield when he approached a tight curve in the roadway. According to accident witnesses, Miller apparently lost control of his vehicle as he was navigating the curve. The motorcycle ran off-road and traveled into a nearby trench, where it crashed into a concrete ledge.
Multiple witnesses stopped at the scene and rushed to the motorcyclist in order to help. After being alerted about the crash, CHP rushed emergency medical responders out to the scene. Responding officials discovered Miller with serious injuries and had him transported to a nearby hospital for emergency treatment. However, he tragically passed away while at the hospital.
As police continue to investigate the accident, officers have not reported any suspected causes. Often, motorcycle accidents like this one happen for more than one reason, and many common collision factors can’t be controlled by motorcyclists. Non-motorcyclist accident factors include malfunctioning motorcycle parts, dangerous issues with roads, and more.
Investigating fatal accidents presents police with some serious challenges. Because investigators can’t ask the involved motorcyclist about what happened, they may never fully understand the cause of the crash. Unfortunately, this can mean that evidence implicating at-fault parties may never be uncovered, leaving families unable to claim fair compensation.
To ensure the crash is investigated fully, it’s important to reach out to a Fairfield wrongful death lawyer who knows how to conduct private accident investigations. By using their experience and resources, your injury attorney will be able to conduct an investigation that prioritizes your family’s rights.
