At about 3:15 p.m. on Sunday, August 14th, a drunk driver struck and killed motorcyclist Jon Boehning in Wildomar. The accident occurred at the intersection of Clinton Keith Road and Palomar Street when 30-year-old Jose Lujan struck Boehning, 47, with his pickup truck. He was transported to a local hospital, where he died a couple of hours later. Police arrested Lujan on suspicion of driving under the influence and vehicular manslaughter. Additional details about the crash have not been released, explains a California injury attorney.
Wildomar accounted for none of the 30 fatalities and 6 of the 520 injuries suffered by motorcyclists in Riverside County in 2009, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System (SWITRS). Throughout the state, motorcyclist fatalities decreased by 29.6 percent, from 560 in 2008 to 394 in 2009, the first decline since 1998, according to the California Office of Traffic Safety.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the family of Jon Boehning, the motorcyclist who was struck and killed by the drunk driver last Sunday.
