Tragic Motorcycle Crash Near Elk Grove

I’m Ed Smith, an Elk Grove motorcycle accident lawyer. On May 4, 2016, a motorcycle rider and an automobile collided prompting a major road closure.

What Happened?

On Wednesday afternoon a traffic collision occurred between the driver of a car and a rider on a motorcycle near Elder Creek Road in the south area of Sacramento. The location of the accident was midway between Elk Grove and Sacramento.

A little after 2:00 p.m. emergency personnel arrived at the scene of a terrible crash on Logan Street, near Elder Creek Road.

What Type of Injuries Occurred?

Sadly, the motorcyclist lost his life tragically in the collision.

The condition of the driver who collided with the motorcyclist is unknown.

Collision Area Required Prompt Road Closures

Authorities quickly shut down the location of Elder Creek Road between Soomis Way and 75th Street.  Investigators combed over the accident scene for several hours before reopening the area to the public.

What Caused the Collision?

No information has been released as to the cause of the deadly crash. The collision is being investigated by Sacramento Police Department.

It usually takes investigators one to two weeks to prepare a traffic collision report. It often takes longer when serious injuries or fatalities are involved.

It is sometimes hard for officers to determine the exact cause of a traffic collision when one of the parties has passed away. This makes it difficult to get both sides of the story as to what the sequence of events were leading up to the moment of impact.

Witnesses can sometimes help by giving an independent statement of the events leading up to the point of impact. That can then be compared with the driver of the automobile’s statement.

Sometimes, traffic collision reports can be in error and may leave the family of the victim with several unanswered questions as to the untimely passing of their loved one.

It is important to obtain the help of an experienced motorcycle accident attorney who knows what steps to take to properly investigate an accident scene and preserve critical evidence that will help prove fault in a case of this nature.
