Shortly before 9:30 p.m. on Monday, October 15, a motorcyclist struck a pedestrian in Rancho Penasquitos, the impact killing both men. While speeding along Carmel Mountain Road on a 2011 Ducati bike, the rider hit a man crossing the street at Sundance Avenue with his dog. Emergency responders pronounced both men dead at the scene. Authorities are investigating the crash.
“The official investigation into a fatal accident can take several weeks to complete, during which time authorities may release few details about the incident,” explained California personal injury lawyer James Ballidis, “which can be frustrating for the families of the victims.”
Throughout San Diego County, traffic collisions claimed the lives of 55 pedestrians and 24 motorcyclists and injured another 938 and 1,044, respectively, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. Statewide, pedestrian fatalities increased by 5.4 percent that year, while motorcyclist deaths decreased by 10.7 percent.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the families of the two men who were killed in the collision.
