Cypress Man Killed in Riverside Motorcycle Accident at Arlington and Hillside Avenues

Riverside, California (March 16, 2020) – A motorcyclist was killed Saturday night in a collision with a tow truck in Riverside, according to police.

The deadly accident happened just before 9:50 p.m. Saturday, March 14 at the intersection of Arlington and Hillside Avenues.

Police said a 54-year-old man was riding his motorcycle westbound on Arlington Avenue when he was hit by a flatbed tow truck that was making a left turn from eastbound Arlington Avenue onto northbound Hillside Avenue.

Firefighters along with the paramedics responded to the scene and freed the motorcyclist who was pinned underneath the tow truck.

The paramedics performed CPR on the rider. Despite life-saving measures, the man did not survive his injuries and was declared dead at the scene. His name has not been disclosed pending notification of next of kin.

No further details were immediately provided.

The cause of the accident remains under investigation.

“Far too many motorcycle collisions are caused by the carelessness or recklessness of other motorists. Sadly, when this occurs, motorcyclists are the ones who tend to suffer the vast majority of injuries”, according to Arin Khodaverdian, Managing Partner and CEO Alpine Law Group. Under California’s rule of comparative negligence, a victim may be able to collect compensation for injuries and other damages even if you were partly at fault for the accident.
