Sky Valley: Motorcycle Passenger Ivy Goodman and One Other Killed in Collision with Truck
Posted on Sep 28, 2012
Shortly before 4 p.m. on Wednesday, September 26, 28-year-old motorcycle passenger Ivy Goodman and another rider were killed in a collision with a pickup truck in Sky Valley. Goodman and the other motorcyclist were riding eastbound on Dillon Road on a 2000 Honda bike when a 2006 Ford F250 turned left from a westbound lane onto Hot Springs Road in front of them. They were thrown from the bike and pronounced dead at the scene. Both were wearing helmets approved by the Department of Transportation at the time of the crash. Authorities are investigating the accident.
“When a driver’s negligence results in a fatal collision, the families of the victims may hold the driver liable for their losses by filing a wrongful death claim,” explained California motorcycle injury lawyer James Ballidis.
In 2010, 36 motorcyclists were killed and 507 were injured in traffic accidents that occurred in Riverside County, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. Statewide, motorcyclist fatalities decreased 10.7 percent from 394 in 2009 to 352 in 2010.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the families of Ivy Goodman and the other rider who was killed in the collision with the truck.
