Accident Leaves Motorcyclist Dead at the Scene; Officers Report

First responders immediately administered life-saving efforts, ultimately unsuccessful as the injuries were too severe and the motorcyclist did not make it. He died at the scene of the accident, resulting in a two-hour closure of Jensen Avenue.

Fresno police officers believe that there were no drugs or alcohol involved. The driver and passenger of the vehicle turning left stayed at the accident scene for police questioning.

Risk of Motorcycle Accidents in Fresno

Besides the little to no protection motorcycles offer, other risks can put a motorcyclist in harm’s way, and some of these include the following:

  • Lane splitting
  • Driving faster than the allowed speed limits
  • Drivers under the influence of drugs
  • Distracted driving
  • Running a stop traffic light
  • Not yielding the right of way.

Who’s at Fault in a Left-hand Turn Accident?

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, left-hand turns contribute to 53% of all cross-path crashes. Traffic rules explain that drivers who want to make a left-hand turn must wait until there is no traffic or it is clear to do so to prevent any accidents involving vehicles coming from the opposite side.

In the “Motorcyclist killed in Southeast Fresno,” a preliminary investigation suggested that the vehicle traveling east collided with the motorcyclist driving west when the driver decided to make a left-hand turn.

It is crucial to conduct a proper investigation into why the driver turned left when an incoming motorcycle was traveling west. Perhaps, the driver was too distracted while behind the wheel and did not notice the motorcyclist, or they thought they could make the left turn without colliding with the motorcycle.

Suppose the investigations reveal that the driver was negligent. In that case, the surviving family members of the deceased motorcyclist may be able to bring a wrongful death action to recover compensation for their loss.
