Rider Suffers Major Injuries in Fairfield Motorcycle Accident at Waterman Boulevard and Edmonton Drive; Joshua Acup Arrested

Fairfield, California (May 15, 2020) – A motorcyclist was seriously injured Wednesday afternoon in an alleged DUI car accident in Fairfield, authorities said.

The crash took place at around 4:40 p.m. Wednesday, May 13, near the intersection of Waterman Boulevard and Edmonton Drive.

Authorities said Joshua Acup, 32, Citrus Heights, was driving an SUV when he drifted across the double yellow line and collided with a motorcyclist near the Fairfield intersection.

The motorcyclist sustained major injuries and was transported to a local trauma center. The name and condition of the victim were not immediately disclosed.

Acup was arrested and booked into the Solano County jail on suspicion of driving the wrong way and DUI causing bodily injury or death. His bail was set at $50,000 bail.

Police closed Waterman Boulevard between Vista Grande and Oliver Road for more than three hours while they investigated the cause of the crash.

“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.
