A 2020 Kawasaki Ninja Was Hit By a 2010 Acura TSX and Then Struck By Semi-Truck Resulting in Death
Motorcyclist Dead after being Struck by a Semi-Truck in Multi-Vehicle Car Crash in Riverside
A tragic event unfolded on Tuesday as a man lost his life in a three-car crash in Riverside. According to the California Highway Patrol, the incident involved multiple vehicles on the westbound 91 Freeway, just west of Cridge Street. Emergency responders arrived on the scene at approximately 5:27 p.m., but the victim had already been struck by a semi-truck and succumbed to his injuries.
Reports show that the motorcyclist, riding on a 2020 Kawasaki Ninja, was splitting lanes when a 2010 Acura TSX driver made a sudden lane change and collided with him. This led to the biker being thrown into another lane where a semi-truck hit him once again, ultimately leading to his death at the scene.
Witnesses report that the driver, who was identified as a juvenile, fled the scene after the accident occurred. Despite efforts to locate the individual, they were able to evade authorities for some time until investigators were able to track down the Acura involved in the crash. As authorities continue to work on the case, we await updates and hope for justice to be served.
It’s heartbreaking to hear of such an unfortunate event, but it reminds us to drive carefully and stay aware of other vehicles on the road to avoid future accidents.
We extend our deepest condolences to the family and loved ones of the victim.
HOW A MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT LAWYER HELPS YOUR CASE
It’s within your rights to handle your legal motorcycle accident case by yourself, but it’s a stressful and risky thing to do. An insurance company will typically toss out a lowball offer when they know you don’t have a lawyer. They’ll assume you don’t know what you’re doing and will say they owe you less because you’re not paying a lawyer.
Plus, an insurance company usually offers compensation for your past medical bills, but what about your future treatment? Your mental health counseling? Your lost days of work? The value of your motorcycle? This could easily be tens of thousands of dollars, if not more.
Your pain and suffering should be valued. Compensation for pain and suffering is protected by California law and should never be undervalued by an insurance company that’s pressing you for a quick settlement.
