At about 9:45 a.m. on Saturday, June 28, 2014, a collision occurred in the Garner Valley area east of Lake Hemet that claimed the life of 34-year-old motorcyclist Robert Knight, of Beaumont, reported The Press-Enterprise. Knight collided with a motorist on Highway 74 approximately two miles west of McCall Park Road in Mountain Center. He succumbed to the injuries he suffered at 10:11 a.m. The occupants of the other vehicle were not hurt. Authorities are investigating the crash.
With a smaller profile on the road and no vehicle occupant enclosure, motorcyclists are not only more likely to be involved in collisions but also more vulnerable to suffering serious or fatal injury in them. Per mile traveled in 2010, the federal government estimated that the number of fatalities suffered on motorcycles was about 30 times the number in passenger vehicles. The following year, 4,388 riders were killed in collisions, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
When an accident claims the life of a motorcycle rider, his or her family may file a wrongful death claim against the at-fault party in order to hold that party liable for their loss. For more information on the wrongful death claims process, please call 888-752-7474 or contact us online.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the family of Robert Knight.
