At around 9 p.m. last night a motorcyclist was killed in a crash on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu. The driver of a car reportedly turned into the path of a motorcyclist while leaving Geoffrey’s restaurant. Authorities pronounced the motorcyclist dead at the scene of the collision. The accident is under investigation, explains a California personal injury attorney.
In 2009, 4,462 motorcyclists were killed and 90,000 were injured in crashes, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s most recent accident statistics. The highest proportion of collisions occurred between a motorcycle rider and a fixed object.
