The crash took place shortly before 7:00 p.m. Saturday, May 2 on Interstate 5 Freeway, just south of Grapevine Road.

The CHP said the motorcyclist was traveling in the southbound lanes of the Interstate 5 when, for unknown reasons, they rear-ended a semi-truck.

“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.
