A traffic collision in Irvine has left one motorist seriously injured. The accident involved a motorcycle and an automobile that collided at 1:15 p.m. on Walnut and Wisteria Avenues in Irvine. The motorcycle rider was hurt in the wreck and taken to a local area hospital. The extent of his injuries were not known at press time.

Another motorcycle rider suffered severe injury in a early morning accident in Idyllwild as well. The man crashed his bike South of Pine Cove Road in Pine Cove at around 10:30 a.m. on State Route 243.  The driver was taken to the Desert Regional medical center in Palm Springs.

Motorcycle accidents can be especially heinous since a bike rider is several times more likely to die or be injured than the driver of a passenger car after a collision. Interestingly enough, it is often the car driver’s fault for refusing to yield the right of way to the motorcycle rider. If you have been hurt in a car accident you could be entitled to compensation. Contact our sponsor’s law offices today for a free consultation with a motorcycle accident and personal injury attorney to learn what they can do to get the money you need for your injuries.
