62-Year-Old Man Killed in Sacramento Moped Crash on 66th Avenue
Sacramento, California (March 12, 2020) – One person was killed in a crash involving a moped and a car on Wednesday in Sacramento, according to the CHP.
The deadly crash occurred on 66th Avenue on March 11.
The police said a 62-year-old man, operating a 2008 Lancer moped, pulled out of a private driveway on 66th Avenue into the path of a 2005 Acura MDX traveling eastbound on 66th Avenue.
The two vehicles collided, and the 62-year-old man was ejected from his moped onto the roadway due to the collision.
The man was transported to a hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries.
Following the accident, the Acura driver, a 19-year-old man, stopped at the scene and was cooperative, CHP said.
Drugs or alcohol were not believed to be a contributing factor in the accident.
An investigation into the crash is underway.
According to Arin Khodaverdian, the Managing Partner and CEO Alpine Law Group, a separate investigation by an experienced attorney is necessary so as clearly uncover the circumstances surrounding the collision. “An attorney will also help the victim to navigate all the legal processes in pursuit of fair compensation and justice. Car accident claims are rarely straightforward, and, regardless of the circumstances involved, liable insurance companies will often do everything possible to limit their out-of-pocket expenses by either devaluing or outright denying your claim. It is crucial, therefore, that you have an experienced attorney on your side,” said Arin.
