Shortly before 6 a.m. on Friday, October 7th, 39-year-old motorcyclist Edward Wayne Myricks II, of Carson, was killed in a crash with a semi in Wilmington. While riding south on Alameda Street at Pacific Coast Highway, Myricks collided with the truck, which was in the midst of making an illegal U-turn. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Authorities are investigating the crash, explains a California personal injury attorney.
Los Angeles County accounted for 80 of the 394 fatalities and 2,709 of the 10,479 injuries suffered by motorcyclists in traffic accidents in California in 2009, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. That year, the number of motorcyclists killed in crashes decreased by 29.6 percent—the first decline recorded by the California Office of Traffic Safety since 1998.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the family of Edward Wayne Myricks II, the motorcyclist who was killed in the collision with the semi truck last Friday.
