Woman Killed in Redding Motorcycle Accident
I’m Ed Smith, a Redding Motorcycle Accident Lawyer. 19-year-old Kennetha Rae Dillon was killed in a collision with a car as she was riding on the back of a motorcycle in Redding, California on Sunday, July 9.
Just before 6:00 p.m., Dillon was headed east on Hartnell Avenue as a passenger on a motorcycle driven by 25-year-old Damon Bedore. James Raymer was heading the opposite way on Hartnell Avenue. Near Middleton Lane, Raymer decided to turn left and the 52-year-old driver did not see the oncoming motorcycle with Damon and Kennetha and turned left right in front of the motorcycle. The bike struck Raymer’s Honda Civic and both riders became trapped beneath the small car.
The Redding Fire Department was called to the scene and were able to remove both victims from under the car. The two motorcycle riders were taken to Mercy Medical Center by an ambulance. Damon Bedore was then transferred to an intensive care unit at the University of California Medical Center at Davis because of his traumatic injuries. At 11:20 p.m. Kennetha Rae Dillon was pronounced dead by Mercy Medical Center doctors. Police reported that Dillon was not wearing a helmet when the crash occurred but the driver of the bike, Bedore, was wearing one. Police also discovered that Bedore was driving on a suspended license.
We extend our condolences to the family and friends of, Kennetha Dillon, who passed away in this tragic motorcycle accident. We send our wishes for a speedy and full recovery to the injured party.
