One Person Killed in Motorcycle Crash in Lincoln

(June 14, 2018) – One person is dead following a collision between a motorcycle and an SUV. The accident happened Thursday afternoon at approximately 3:43 p.m. The collision took place on Lincoln Newcastle Highway (193) westbound, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Reportedly, a motorcycle and a dark-colored SUV collided with one another for reasons that are still unknown. According to reports the SUV veered off the roadway and proceeded to travel down to the embankment where, for an unknown reason, the motorcyclist was blocking off the highway. Emergency crews along with local fire officials quickly arrived on the scene in an attempt to assist any victims. Unfortunately, one person who was believed to be the motorcyclist died at the scene of the crash.

This accident raised a SigAlert and blocked several lanes of traffic on Highway 193. The lanes that were blocked were westbound lanes at Sierra College Boulevard and eastbound at Oak Tree Lane.

A detailed investigation is currently being conducted in order to determine who may have been at fault for the crash. We extend our warmest condolences to the victim and their family and loved ones during this tragic time.

Motorcycle Accident Attorney

Motorcycle accidents are often among the most severe due to the lack of protection between the riders’ body and the impact of a vehicle during a crash. Pending the results of the investigation, and whether or not police determine that the SUV driver was operating their vehicle negligently, there could likely be a wrongful death claim to follow. While it is absolutely always up to the victim or victims’ family to file for compensation, many do because of the immense financial woes that come immediately after an injury or death. The expense of unexpected funeral costs, future lost wages, and loss of companionship are three major reasons why family members often opt to file for compensation.

We here at Brady Law Group recognize there are often few more things as difficult as dealing with the sudden loss of a loved one.
