A 23-year old motorcyclist was killed the other day when he collided with a vehicle making a left-hand turn in Fontana.
California Vehicle Code Section 21801(a) states, "The driver of a vehicle intending to turn to the left or to complete a U-turn upon a highway, or to turn left into public or private property, or an alley, shall yield the right-of-way to all vehicles approaching from the opposite direction which are close enough to constitute a hazard at any time during the turning movement, and shall continue to yield the right-of-way to the approaching vehicles until the left turn or U-turn can be made with reasonable safety."
The man was pronounced dead at the scene. The California Highway Patrol is investigating to determine what caused this fatal accident.
With the assistance of an experienced and compassionate San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney, the family of this young victim may be able to hold the negligent party responsible for the wrongful death and take action against the reckless party that caused their loss.
