MERCED, CA – Police in Merced say a motorcyclist died after colliding with a car on Saturday night. A motorcycle was involved in a crash with a parked car around 6:30 p.m. near Bear Creek Drive and Glen Avenue. Officers arrived to find a 34-year-old man and a 27-year-old man injured.

Officials report that the older of the two men died after being taken to a local hospital. According to investigators, the second man remains hospitalized, but his condition is stable at this time.

It was discovered during the investigation that both men had been riding the same motorcycle. The motorcycle crashed into a parked car along the curb for an unknown reason.

According to police, alcohol may have been a factor in the crash, but the cause is still under investigation.

Merced Wrongful Death Lawyers

Over 15,500 people sustain injuries in California motorcycle collisions per year. Though it would be ideal for every injured victim to fully recover, this is rarely the case, as motorcyclists are basically unprotected in the event of an accident. More than 600 people are killed in motorcycle accidents throughout California each and every year

Fatal accidents have a devastating impact on families. In many cases, victims are left to grieve the loss of their loved ones while trying to come to terms with the fact that their loved one lost their life in an accident caused by the negligent actions of another person.

In many cases, motorcyclists are involved in wrecks with other vehicles operated by distracted, impaired, and reckless drivers. Although we can be vigilant to protect others who are sharing the road, there is no guarantee that other motorists are going to take our safety into consideration while driving. As a result, we see numerous people fatally injured in accidents in California that could have been prevented.
