Investigators are currently looking into whether or not there were any negligent factors involved in this crash. Police will be seeking to prove if excessive speed, distracted driving, or intoxication were involved on any level. Negligent drivers cause immense pain and damage, and it is our belief that each one should be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law.

Funeral costs, hospital bills, and loss of future wages are all reasons why many victims choose to file a claim for compensation. Of course, while we take pride in holding negligent drivers accountable for their actions, it is solely up to the victim and/or victims’ family to decide if they wish to seek compensation.

Fatal Motorcycle Accident in Cajon Pass

Jon Wike Killed in Accident on Highway 138

Cajon Pass, California (June 22, 2018) – A motorcycle crash on Highway 138 caused the death of one individual on Thursday afternoon, according to local reports from Cajon Pass. The crash occurred west of Interstate 15 around 6:14 p.m.

Initial statements report that the motorcyclist had been driving a burgundy Harley- Davidson Electric Glide Classic motorcycle along the Highway 138 freeway on June 21. Melissa Donovan, the 26-year-old Montana woman driving a white 2018 Jeep Cherokee, had stopped at a 76 gas station and began pulling out of the station. She proceeded to enter the westbound lane of the road and into the path of the oncoming motorcyclist. According to Donovan, she did not see the motorcyclist approaching.  

The motorcyclist attempted to break and avoid the jeep but did so too quickly and ended up overturning onto the vehicle’s left side. The motorcyclist and the motorcycle proceed to collide with the left side of the Jeep.

The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department has identified the motorcyclist as Jon David Wike, a 52-year-old resident of Palmdale, California.

The San Bernardino police were dispatched to the scene along with paramedics and other first responders. Paramedics discovered Wike in critical condition and immediately rushed him the San Bernardino Community Hospital, where, despite the best efforts of medical professionals, he succumbed to his injuries and passed away.

An investigation is ongoing into the cause and nature of the accident.

Our hearts and condolences go out to the family and friends of the victims of this tragic accident. An investigation into the collision will include a forensic examination of the Harley-Davidson and the Jeep to determine the speed of the vehicles at the time of the collision, the angle at which the two vehicles collided, and other vital pieces of evidence. Police will use these clues and others to best determine where liability lies.

No words can ease the grief, and we do not intend for these posts to be solicitations for business. However, the expenses involved in a wrongful death situation can be rather large, especially if the family was not expecting and planning for  the death or their treasured loved one.
