One Person Injured in Motorcycle Crash on Myrtle Avenue in Eureka
A local news source reported Tuesday afternoon, June 12, that a motorcyclist collided with a vehicle in Eureka. The crash happened on Myrtle Avenue shortly after noon. According to the California Highway Patrol, the motorcyclist was riding down Myrtle Avenue behind a white Sedan. The Sedan reportedly had to quickly slam on the brakes for a pedestrian who was attempting to cross the street.
Unfortunately, the motorcyclist was unable to stop fast enough and subsequently crashed into the rear end of the vehicle. The motorcyclist was quickly transported to a local hospital to undergo evaluation and treatment for any injuries. No other information on this accident is available at this time, although injuries are believed to have been relatively minor.
Police are currently conducting an investigation in order to understand each and every factor involved in the accident. It is yet to be determined whether or not any negligent behavior is to blame for the crash. Police will likely be looking into all facets including the possibility of speeding and/or driving under the influence. Regardless of the results of the investigation, we hope that the victim is able to recover swiftly from any and all injuries.
If the driver of the Sedan is found to have participated in any degree of negligent driving, there could easily be grounds for a personal injury case to follow. Motor vehicle accidents that result in injuries are often trailed by the legal fight for compensation. This is because even in accidents that result in only minor injuries still create a steep amount of medical bills, future medical bills, and lost wages. Nevertheless, it is always the choice of the injured party to take action.
