Huntington Beach: Man Seriously Injured in Motorcycle Crash
Posted on Mar 15, 2011
Shortly before 6:30 yesterday morning, a man was seriously injured in a motorcycle crash in Huntington Beach. The accident, which occurred near the intersection of Magnolia Street and Yorktown Avenue, involved a 1996 Honda Civic and a Suzuki motorcycle. While the driver of the Honda was not hurt, the motorcycle rider sustained major injuries and was transported to a nearby hospital. Police have asked that anyone who witnessed the collision call (714) 536-5666, according to an Orange County injury attorney.
2009 was the first year in eleven that the number of fatalities suffered by motorcyclists did not increase; in fact, it declined by 850 fatalities, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s most recent accident statistics. That year, 4,462 motorcyclists were killed in traffic accidents and 90,000 were injured. 394 of the fatalities were suffered in California.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish the man who was seriously injured yesterday in Huntington Beach a full recovery.
