Man tragically killed in motorcycle-pedastrian accident

A man was tragically killed in a collision with a motorcycle on June 26 while walking outside by his home near San Bernardino. The man had reportedly left the house to take a walk just moments before being struck and killed by the motorcyclist, only about 25 feet from the home.

According to family members, the man was a beloved member of the community, loved by everyone who had the chance to know him. The man had been a resident of the high desert area for many years, having moved there as a young boy. He was working at a local restaurant, having just completed a phlebotomy program when his life was tragically cut short.

According to authorities, the motorcyclist also suffered several serious injuries in the accident, and at the time of reporting was still being held for treatment after being airlifted to a trauma center. The crash is still being investigated by the sheriff's Major Accident Investigation Team.

Motorist accidents involving pedestrians are heartbreaking and all too common. Motorcycles are among the most likely vehicles to be involved in an injury accident, providing little to no protection for either a driver or those who may be struck by a motorcyclist. With the high degree of skill necessary to safely and consistently operate a motorcycle, factors such as drowsy impaired or drowsy driving can be especially lethal in an accident involving a motorcycle.

Accidents involving pedestrian deaths are always heartbreaking. The guidance of an experienced legal professional can help any individuals suffering in the wake of such a tragedy to walk through this difficult time and begin rebuilding a better life on the other side.
