Shortly after 6 p.m. on Saturday, June 1, a motorcyclist and female passenger were injured in a crash in the Normal Heights neighborhood of San Diego. The 46-year-old female driver of a sedan ran a stop sign at the intersection of Adams Avenue and Wilson Avenue, striking the rider, who was traveling east on Adams at the time. Emergency responders transported the rider and passenger to an area hospital to receive treatment for fractures. The accident is under investigation.
“When a driver’s negligence causes a crash that harms others, the driver may be held liable for the expenses associated with the victims’ recoveries,” explained California motorcycle accident attorney James Ballidis.
Throughout San Diego County, 1,064 motorcyclists lost their lives or were injured in crashes in 2010, according to the California Office of Traffic Safety. The OTS ranked San Diego 26th out of 58 counties for its incidence of fatal and injury motorcycle accidents; 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 motorcycle rider and passenger who were seriously injured in the crash.
