Huntington Beach: Police Searching For Driver Who Struck Motorcyclist
Posted on Mar 06, 2011
Last week, the driver of either a black Dodge Charger or Magnum struck and seriously injured a motorcyclist near the intersection of Beach Boulevard and Slater Avenue. The 29-year-old motorcycle rider was transported to a local hospital for treatment. The Huntington Beach Police Department has asked that witnesses or anyone with information about the accident call (714) 536-5670, according to an Orange County auto accident attorney.
Nationwide, 4,462 motorcyclists were killed and 90,000 were injured in traffic accidents in 2009, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, NHTSA. In 2008, the most recent year for which the California Highway Patrol has released accident statistics, Huntington Beach accounted for 35 of the 537 fatal and 801 of the 11,390 injury motorcycle accidents that occurred throughout the state.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish the motorcyclist who was injured by the hit-and-run driver a full recovery.
