At about 9:40 a.m. on Saturday, August 24, 78-year-old motorcyclist Richard Robledo was killed in a collision in Ontario. A pickup truck struck Robledo as he turned left from a northbound lane of Euclid Avenue onto Highway 60. Robledo was taken to an area hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries. The accident is under investigation.
“After a fatal collision, the family of the victim may file a wrongful death claim in order to hold the negligent party liable for their loss,” explained California motorcycle accident lawyer James Ballidis.
Seven motorcyclists lost their lives or were injured in traffic accidents that occurred in Ontario in 2010, according to the California Office of Traffic Safety. The OTS ranked Ontario 46th out of 53 cities for its incidence of fatal and injury motorcycle accidents in a rating system in which 1st place is considered the worst.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the family of Richard Robledo, the motorcyclist who was killed in the collision.
