Garden Grove, CA (February 9, 2022) – On Tuesday night, February 8, a fatal motorcycle crash occurred at an intersection in Garden Grove.
According to local officials, the accident happened at the intersection of Chapman Avenue and Knott Street around 8:26 p.m. A rider was on a black motorcycle in the area when they collided with a pickup truck. At the time, the pickup truck was making a left turn onto Knott. The accident led to extensive damages to the motorcycle.
Paramedics, fire crews, and several other local responders were immediately dispatched to the scene to help those in need. The motorcyclist, identified as a 56-year-old Garden Grove man, was tragically pronounced dead at the scene due to severe injuries. The driver of the pickup truck was allegedly not injured in the crash.
The roadway was blocked in the area of the intersection for some time. Police quickly worked to clear the scene so traffic could return as normal.
No further details have been released but the investigation remains ongoing. Police will update as soon as more information becomes available.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.
Motorcycle accidents have been increasing every year in California but still cause thousands of injuries and hundreds of fatalities every year. In 2018, it is estimated that approximately 523 lives were lost due to California motorcycle accidents. By 2019, it was reported that approximately 474 people were killed in fatal motorcycle accidents. It is never easy to face the loss of a loved one whose life has been taken prematurely in a fatal motorcycle accident. If you and your family have suffered from these enormous losses, you should be prepared to speak with an attorney who has your best interests in mind.
One of the major reasons why motorcycle accidents happen is because drivers are unsure about how they will share the roads with motorcyclists. Because of this, drivers are more likely to engage in negligent acts that put motorcyclists at risk, even if it was an accident. If you have sustained enormous losses due to a motorcycle crash, you should have assistance on your side. An attorney will be able to help you gather necessary evidence in your claim, as well as help you to meet deadlines that are required of you. If you have sustained losses in a motorcycle crash, you should speak with a Garden Grove motorcycle accident lawyer who has handled these types of claims in the past.
