Motorcyclist killed in a chain-reaction accident

A 27-year old woman has been charged with vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence while intoxicated, driving under the influence causing bodily injury, a blood-alcohol level of 0.20 percent or more, and causing bodily injury or death to more than one victim. Her actions caused a chain-reaction accident that ended with the death of a motorcyclist.

When police tested the woman for alcohol about two hours after the crash, her blood-alcohol level registered at 0.23 percent - almost three times the legal limit.

Witnesses said that the woman was speeding and swerved into another lane where she struck a vehicle, causing that vehicle to spin out of control and jump over the center divider. Within minutes, a motorcyclist, who was unable to stop, slammed into the vehicle. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

It would be wise for them to consult with an experienced San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney to determine if they can file a wrongful death lawsuit and be compensated for their loss and expenses incurred at this time.
