According to a recent report from The Record, a 48-year-old resident of Stockton, California was killed in a motorcycle accident around 5:50 p.m. on Sunday, January 12. The motorcyclist was riding westbound on Highway 29 on his 2002 Indian near the intersection with Shelley Road when he lost control of his motorcycle and crashed, according to the California Highway Patrol. The 48-year-old motorcyclist then swerved to the left and collided with the embankment on the opposite side of the road.
The ambulance was called to the scene 10 minutes after the accident; however, emergency crews pronounced the victim dead and did not take him to the hospital, according to a representative of American Medical Response. Authorities are still unsure as to the cause of the accident. Fortunately, the road was empty at the time of the accident so no one else was injured.
Motorcycle accidents can occur in the absence of other motor vehicles due to inclement weather conditions, adverse road conditions and/or defective parts. Relatively minor motorcycle accidents can result in horrific injuries such as loss of limbs, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and death.
