Car accidents can be serious enough when regular vehicles are involved in the collision, but when a motorcycle is involved in the accident, it can be even more severe. Motorcyclists do not have the level of protection that drivers have, nor do they have the amount of mass that standard-sized vehicles have. This means that if a motorcycle is involved in an accident, a person can receive serious injuries from the collision. Unfortunately, a motor vehicle accident in California recently injured one motorcyclist.
The accident took place in the morning just before 10 a.m. and involved a box truck and a motorcycle. Initial investigations reported that the box truck attempted to make a right turn in front of the motorcycle, which then struck the side of the box truck. The victim was a California Highway Patrol officer.
