Natomas Deadly Motorcycle Crash

I’m Ed Smith, a Natomas motorcycle accident lawyer. A motorcyclist was tragically struck and killed near Natomas on April 21, 2016.

What Happened? 

A motorcyclist died after being involved in a crash with a big rig along Interstate 80, the California Highway Patrol said.

The crash occurred about 3:30 p.m. in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 80 in the vicinity of Northgate Boulevard. The incident blocked all lanes of highway.

Traffic was at a stand still and backed up as far as El Camino Avenue while rescue crews worked to clear the scene of this tragic collision.

Finally, at around 6:30 p.m., two of the lanes were reopened to motorists. The roadway was cleared of the wreckage by 6:40 p.m.

Sadly, the motorcyclist was pronounced deceased at the scene. No other information about the cause of the crash or the condition of the truck driver was available.

Sometimes traffic collision reports can be in error. It is difficult to determine liability or cause of an accident when one of the parties die.

It is crucial to call an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer who is familiar with investigating collisions involving big rigs. These types of attorneys have experts who go out and perform a thorough investigation to preserve evidence, determine liability and properly protect your rights.
