Fullerton High School Teacher Jeff Rupp Critically Injured in Motorcycle Accident
James E. Ballidis
Last night, Jeff Rupp, a government and philosophy teacher at Fullerton Union High School, was critically injured in a motorcycle accident. While riding his 2003 Harley-Davidson motorcycle in the northbound lanes of Euclid Street he was struck by a 2004 Hyundai sedan making a left turn from the southbound lane onto Malvern Avenue. He sustained head injuries and broken bones and was transported to UCI Medical Center. An investigation is underway and authorities have asked witnesses to contact Investigator Brandon Clyde at 714-738-6812 or the front desk of the Fullerton Police Station at 714-738-6715, explains an Orange County injury attorney.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, NHTSA, recently released its 2009 Traffic Safety Facts. That year, motorcycle accidents accounted for 4,462 of the 33,808 traffic crash fatalities and 90,000 of the 2,217,000 injuries—a decrease from 2008, when there were 5,290 fatalities and 96,000 injuries. In 2009, 45.4% of the collisions were between a motorcyclist and another motor vehicle in transport.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish Jeff Rupp, the motorcyclist critically injured in Fullerton last night, a full recovery.
