Ventura: Collision Involving Multiple Motorcycles Injured Four

Shortly after 1 p.m. on Saturday, February 23, a collision involving multiple motorcycles injured four people in Ventura. The crash occurred in northbound lanes of Highway 33 near Canada Large Road. Emergency responders transported the victims to the hospital, their injuries ranging from minor to moderate. Authorities are investigating the crash.

“After a collision, the driver determined to be responsible for the accident may be held liable for the expense of the victims’ recoveries,” explained California motorcycle accident attorney James Ballidis, “such as for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.”

The city of Ventura accounted for 1 of the 7 fatalities and 16 of the 208 injuries suffered by motorcyclists in crashes that occurred in the county in 2010,” according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. The California Office of Traffic Safety ranked Ventura 36th out of 53 cities of a similar size for its incidence of motorcycle crashes that year; 1st place is the worst possible ranking.

All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the four people who were injured in the collision involving multiple motorcycles.

The Ventura County Star originally reported this crash.
