California Motorcycle Crash
Our thoughts go out to the friends and family of Elbin Morales. It is never easy to lose a family member, especially one so young, due to a traffic collision.
This crash certainly highlights some of the dangers associated with motorcycles. It is not clear at this time who was at fault for the wreck. However, it appears that Morales may not have done anything wrong. Despite this, his motorcycle took the impact of the collision. A motorcycle cannot withstand such impacts the same way that a vehicle can. Motorcycle riders certainly have much less safety and security than a traditional vehicle driver or passenger.
