Paramedics along with Los Angeles firefighters responded to the crash and arrived on the scene to assist the injured rider. The motorcyclist was suffering from unspecified injuries due to the impact of the accident. He was immediately transported to a local hospital to undergo an evaluation and treatment. Neither the exact condition nor the name of the motorcyclist is known at this time, and the pickup truck driver was not injured. Police are currently conducting an in-depth investigation in order to figure out who exactly is to held liable for the crash.
In order to determine liability, there are many factors that the investigation will be looking into. Investigators will primarily be working to find out if any negligent behavior was involved in the cause of the crash. They will be seeking answers as to whether or not excessive speed, drugs and/or alcohol, or other forms of distracted driving were a reason for the accident. While investigators work to determine exactly how the crash occurred, we hope for the health and well-being of the victim.
If it is determined that the pickup driver acted negligently behind the wheel, there will be courses of action available for the victim to take. It is always up to the victim if they wish to seek compensation for their injuries, although that is often the case due to the extremely high financial losses suffered by most injuries.
