At around 3 p.m. on Tuesday, October 26th, 43-year-old motorcyclist Herbert Herman Rivas was heading eastbound on Redondo Beach Boulevard when he collided with a Toyota Sienna van that was turning left onto Budlong Avenue in Gardena.  Unfortunately, he died from the injuries he sustained. Gardena police have requested that witnesses call Traffic Investigator Sergio Borbon at (310) 217-6135, explains a California motorcycle accident attorney.

Throughout the United States, 5,290 motorcyclists were killed and 96,000 injured in 2008, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. That year, 2,554 (47%) of all motorcyclists involved in fatal crashes collided with another type of motor vehicle in transport. In 41% of these accidents, the other vehicle was turning left while the motorcycle was traveling straight, passing, or overtaking the vehicle. 

Everyone at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer their condolences to the family of Herbert Herman Rivas.

The Los Angeles Times originally reported this Gardena motorcycle accident.
