LAKE FOREST, California – Steven David Muller, 29, of Lake Forest was killed Wednesday afternoon after the motorcyclist was struck by a car at Peachwood Street and Palmwood Drive, according to a press release by the Orange County Sheriff Coroner Department and news reports.

According to the Orange County Register, the driver of a 2010 Acura made a left-hand turn in front of the motorcyclist as he was driving his bike eastbound on Peachwood Drive.  Other news reports indicated the motorcyclist was riding behind a pickup truck and the driver allegedly did not see him as he pulled out into the intersection.

Muller reportedly attempted to avoid the collision and applied his brakes, but the bike slide out from under him and into the left driver’s side of the car. Muller was then ejected into the roadway, the Register said. Police told reporters that the driver of the Acura was cooperative and as of press time had not been cited or arrested.

Emergency workers including Orange County firefighters treated the man at the scene and immediately transported him to Mission Hospital Regional Medical Center in Mission Viejo where he later died shortly after the crash at 12:48 p.m.

The Lake Forest motorcycle crash is under investigation by the Orange County Sheriff’s Department’s major accident reconstruction team.

Liability Issues in Lake Forest Motorcycle Accidents

Under California law, drivers are expected to exercise a certain standard of care when they are on our roadways and when they fall below that standard they can be deemed negligent. Motorists who fail to yield the right of way to a motorcycle rider would be considered negligent under the law. However, if the motorist responsible for the crash ran a red light or a stop sign and struck the motorcyclist his actions would be deemed intentional as there exists a probability that injury to another could result from this action.

CORONA, California (RIVERSIDE COUNTY) –  A small single-engine Cessna 182 airplane crashed in the vicinity of the Corona Municipal Airport Friday evening injuring the pilot and an 18-year-old passenger and causing a small brush fire, according to articles in the Los Angeles Times and Orange County Register.

The pilot was identified as KFI-AM 640 traffic reporter Mike Nolan and the teenager Blaze Hernandez was said to be a student pilot as well as the nephew of a friend, according to various news reports. Nolan’s injuries included three broken ribs, cuts and a fractured clavicle. Hernandez suffered a laceration to his arm. Neither Nolan, nor his nephew sustained any life-threatening injuries in the Corona airplane crash.

The crash, which took place about 6:30 p.m., was located roughly two miles from the airport near Lincoln and Harrington streets.  The cause of the airplane crash is under investigation by both the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board. Initial reports indicate that the airplane engine lost power before striking power lines and crashing into a field. Moments after the two were freed from the wreckage a power pole fell on the plane and it erupted in flames.

“Airplanes experiencing engine failure could be the result of faulty maintenance or defective parts or design,” said Attorney West Seegmiller. “Thankfully, Mr. Nolan was an experienced pilot logging some 35,000 hours in the air otherwise the crash may have been much more devastating.”

Friday, July 20th, 2012

HUNTINGTON BEACH, California—Christian Dasilva, a 40-year-old motorcyclist, died Monday afternoon after colliding with a Lexus, police said.

According to an Orange County Register article, on Monday, July 16th, Dasilva was riding a 2011 Triumph Bonneville T100 and was wearing a helmet at the time of the collision. Dasilva was headed westbound on Hamilton Avenue when he collided with a Lexus sedan.  The driver of the Lexus remained at the scene to talk to police who made no arrests or citations.

Dasilva was taken to Western Medical Center in Santa Ana, where he was pronounced dead, according to the Register.

The cause of the collision is under investigation. Authorities are asking anyone who witnessed the collision to contact Huntington Beach traffic investigators at 714-536-5666.

Leisure World Drunk Driver Arraignment In Death of Robert Dillon

Friday, July 20th, 2012

SANTA ANA, California—Dale Snyder Quinn, a 75-year-old woman accused of having a blood alcohol content level of .22 percent, will be arraigned Friday morning for crashing her car into an 86-year-old man and killing him at an intersection inside Leisure World in Seal Beach.

According to the Orange County District Attorneys’ office, Quinn is accused of failing to stop at an intersection inside the Leisure World complex at approximately 5:40 p.m. on May 20, 2012. The defendant ignored three marked stop signs and two pedestrian-crossing signs and slammed into 86-year-old Robert Dillon who was crossing the street on his battery-operated scooter, said a spokesperson from the D.A.’s office.

Dillon was thrown from his scooter on impact and was transported to a hospital where he died eight days later from his injuries, said a D.A.’s  office spokesperson. Quinn was found sitting in her car and police say she displayed signs of intoxication including slurred speech, watery eyes and emitting an odor of alcohol.

Dale is charged with one felony count of vehicular manslaughter by lawful act that might cause death with gross negligence while intoxicated and if convicted, the D.A.’s office says she faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in state prison.

“There is no excuse for driving under the influence,” said Attorney West Seegmiller, founder of the Seegmiller Law firm. “Those who drive drunk and endanger the lives of others need to be held accountable for the damage and destruction they cause.”

Nationwide there were 10,228 deaths attributed to alcohol impaired driving in 2010 and while the numbers are staggering, the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration reports that deaths from drunk drivers were actually down nearly 5 percent in 2010 compared to 2009.
