Motorcycle accident: 1 dead, 4 injured near Lemoore

The California Highway Patrol was still investigating on June 9 a fatal motorcycle accident that had occurred the day before involving several Navy personnel. The motorcycle accident resulted in one death and minor injuries to four individuals. The investigation is presumably ongoing, and police have not disclosed what party or parties may have been at fault in the accident.

The motorcycle accident occurred when three Navy personnel were riding their motorcycles back to their base at the Lemoore Naval Air Station. One of the motorcycles apparently rear ended a car, and the motorcyclist was ejected from his vehicle. He died at the scene, and four passengers of the car were taken to an area hospital with what were initially described as minor injuries.

The circumstances of the accident are not entirely clear. The investigation will likely focus on evidence found at the accident scene as well as witness testimony. While one would normally suspect that a driver who rear ends another vehicle to be found at fault in a collision, it is not always so clear-cut. If the car made a sudden stop or made a seemingly reckless move in front of the motorcycle, it may be a factor in who is determined to be at fault.

There were no immediate reports of any arrests or citations issued concerning the fatal motorcycle accident. While it remains to be seen what the results of this investigation will show, one can only hope the family of the deceased serviceman finds the strength to cope with their grief as they continue to search for answers and consider their rights and responsibilities under California law.
