Motorcycle Accident Meets Truck Accident

There were reports of a dangerous motorcycle accident
in Manhattan Beach, California recently. A motorcyclist was seriously
injured after he and his bike slid under a flatbed truck. The
motorcyclist, a 39-year-old man, had just turned left and slid under
the truck as the vehicle was making a left turn.  The truck’s rear
wheels rolled over the man, crushing his pelvis. The motorcyclist, whose
name was not released, was taken to County-Harbor UCLA Medical Center,
where he underwent surgery.
Motorcycle Accident Statistics

According to California Highway Patrol’s 2008 Statewide Integrated
Traffic Records System (SWITRS),  there were 114 fatalities and 2,934
injuries reported due to motorcycle accidents in Los Angeles County.

Motorcycle Accident Law

The truck driver may have failed to have seen the motorcyclist as he
made the left turn. It is not clear if he stopped at the stop sign
before making that turn, but California law requires drivers to come to
a complete stop at a stop sign and proceed with caution. According to the California Vehicle Code Section 21802
(a): “The driver of any vehicle approaching a stop sign at the
entrance to, or within, an intersection shall stop as required by
Section 22450. The driver shall then yield the right-of-way to any
vehicles which have approached from another highway, or which are
approaching so closely as to constitute an immediate hazard, and shall
continue to yield the right-of-way to those vehicles until he or she can
proceed with reasonable safety.”
