NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. – A motorcycle rider lost control of his motorcycle after he struck a parked car on the Balboa Peninsula Monday night suffering very serious injuries, Newport Beach Police officials reported.
Car accident law firms report that the motorcycle driver was heading north on Newport Boulevard approaching 26th Street just before 7 p.m. when for unknown reasons he struck a parked vehicle and was reportedly thrown from his bike, officials said. It is not known whether the man’s injuries were life-threatening, but he was transported to Western Medical Center in Santa Ana, police said.
The two streets were closed to traffic so police could conduct an investigation of the accident. So far, police indicated that the vehicle the motorcycle struck was parked legally and its occupants were not hurt in the car accident.
“Police will need to undergo a thorough investigation to determine what happened to this young man, but sadly many motorcycle accidents are typically the fault of the driver,” said Attorney West Seegmiller, founder of the Seegmiller Law Firm.
“Fortunately motorcycle accidents are on the decline over the past few years despite the rise in people riding street bikes,” said Seegmiller, a car accident lawyer who handles personal injury claims for injured victims.
In fact, motorcycle drivers were deemed to be at fault in 270 out of 406 fatal accidents or 65% of accidents involving bikers, according to California Department of Motor Vehicle statistics. Additionally, the number of motorcycle victims killed in 2009 was down almost 28% to 383 and down roughly 11% to 10,478 for those injured, DMV reports.
