Woman killed in motorcycle accident

A 65-year old Hesperia woman on a motorcycle was struck and killed by a vehicle when the driver ran a stop sign in Big Bear City. The driver of the vehicle was not injured.

The fatal accident happened at an intersection when the driver of the vehicle drove through a stop sign without yielding the right-of-way to the woman. California Vehicle Code Section 21801(a) states, "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."

The accident is under investigation to determine if the driver was distracted, speeding or just simply negligent. If the driver is found to be at fault, he can be held civilly liable for the woman's wrongful death. It would be wise for the family of the victim to consult with an experienced San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney to seek compensation for all expenses and the loss of their family member.
