At that time, a driver attempted to turn into the westbound lanes of Lake Tahoe.  As the driver turned into the roadway, he caused a collision with the motorcyclist.  The motorcyclist tried to avoid the collision by applying his brakes but ultimately struck the side of the turning vehicle.

Police and emergency medical officials rushed to the crash scene.  The motorcyclist suffered serious injuries.  Fire officials pronounced him dead at the scene.   The vehicle driver remained on scene and cooperated with the police investigation.

Southern California Motorcycle Accidents

Our thoughts are with the family of the deceased motorcyclist in this South Lake Tahoe crash.

Motorcycle collisions can have severe and catastrophic consequences.  A motorcycle rider is naturally at a higher risk of serious injury following a crash.  The motorcycle offers far less protection than a car.  The motorcyclist often bears the full force of impact in a crash.

In addition, there is a stigma associated with motorcyclists involved in crashes.  People will often assume that a motorcyclist must be at fault for the collision.  Insurance adjusters may also try to take this same approach when investigating a claim involving a motorcycle wreck.

When you have been hurt in a Southern California motorcycle crash, you need the services of a good personal injury attorney.  At the Los Angeles Injury Group, our attorneys represent motorcycle accident victims who have been injured by the negligence of another.
