More Riders on the Road Means More Unseen Motorcyclists Being Struck By Negligent Drivers on the Roadways of Southern California
Spring Motorcycle Weather Brings Increased Motorcycle Accident Injury – Motorcycle season is upon us once again since the warm weather has arrived. Motorcycle accidents laid dormant during the cold rainy season and are waking up. Police research data reveals that the two leading causes of motorcycle accidents are unsafe speed and driver inattention. More than two-thirds of motorcycle crashes involving vehicles occur when the vehicle’s driver fails to see the motorcycle. More than half of these crashes occur at intersections. Solo bike crashes involve excessive speed and inexperienced riders.
A motorcycle vs. car accident started the season of crashes on Monday night in Anaheim at about 7:45 p.m. On Lincoln Avenue in Anaheim, between Brookhurst and Empire Street, a motorcyclist was struck by a Honda Civic, which put the biker down on the pavement. The rider was rushed by ambulance to UCI Medical Center in Orange, California, but he was later pronounced dead. His identity has not yet been released. The driver of the car was a female who was given field sobriety tests, questioned, and cleared from suspicion. Anaheim Police do not suspect that drugs or alcohol were involved in the fatal motorcycle crash. Lincoln Avenue was closed between Brookhurst and Empire streets during the investigation.
