A motorcycle accident in San Diego left one man with serious injuries on February 1, according to 10News.com. A 21-year-old motorcyclist collided with a car in the Barrio Logan area. According to police reports, the accident occurred at the intersection of Main and Vesta streets just before 5 p.m.
According to San Diego Polce Officer Dino Delimitrios, the victim was heading east on Main Street before colliding with a Chevrolet Monte Carlo that was turning left on Vista Street. Paramedics rushed the victim to the hospital with a broken leg and clavicle. The accident remains under investigation.
75% of all motorcycle accidents involve another vehicle. 2/3 of the accidents cite the motorcyclist as at fault in the accident report. In multiple-car accidents involving a motorcycle, the car failing to yield to the motorcycle’s right-of-way was as the cause.
If you choose to ride a motorcycle, you need to be aware of the associated risks. Other motorists must respect you like they would any other vehicle, however.
