Fatality Reported in Merced County Motorcycle Accident
I’m Ed Smith, a Merced wrongful death attorney. According to the California Highway Patrol (CHP), a motorcyclist was found deceased in an area west of Los Banos on August 1, 2018. At approximately 4:40 in the morning, emergency crews responded to separate reports of a grass fire along the east shoulder of Interstate 5 in the vicinity of Highway 152. When crews arrived at the scene, they discovered a motorcycle and a man in the grass fire. Unfortunately, the man was pronounced deceased at the scene. Officials have withheld his identity from the public due to pending notification of next-of-kin.
I would like to extend my sympathies to those grieving the loss of their loved one involved in this accident.
