"We need to get the motorcyclist's side of the story to see what led up to this incident. We're not sure what happened farther back."
Motorcycle riders are undoubtedly the most vulnerable drivers on the road. They do not have the cushion of a car around them, meaning they potentially stand the greatest risk of getting hurt in an accident. Having negligent or reckless drivers in the vicinity increases the likelihood that, if something does go wrong and a motorcycle accident occurs, the motorcycle rider will most likely endure serious, if not fatal, injuries.
Whenever a California biker heads out onto the open road, he or she is at risk of being involved in a motorcycle accident. That's why it's critical that all bikers and their passengers wear protective gear. However, sometimes the collision of a motorcycle accident is so severe that the rider is simply unable to sustain the injuries suffered, no matter what vigilant measures he or she has taken.
