A fatal motorcycle collision with a vehicle at the intersection of Archwood Street with Winnetka Avenue in Woodland HIlls resulted in the tragic death of the motorcyclist, Michael Beirdneau, age 47, on the afternoon of Tuesday, May 12, 2015. Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey told new sources that the deadly motorcycle accident occurred around 2:30 pm.
Dead at the Scene
Beirdneau, whose identity was initially withheld pending notification of family, was pronounced dead at the scene of the terrible wreck. According to reports, Los Angeles police officer, Jane Kim, stated that no one was injured in the other vehicle involved in the accident.
Who was to blame?
The drivers of automobiles must keep careful watch for traffic that is difficult to see, such as motorcycles, and must pay attention to their movements, which can be more sudden and unexpected than those of larger vehicles. Motorcyclists are more easily injured or killed in collisions with automobiles.
News reports have not indicated whether this fatal motorcycle accident was caused by negligent driving, careless driving or other causes. If motor vehicle driver negligence caused Michael Beirdneau’s death, then his family may be entitled to monetary compensation for financial losses stemming from his wrongful death.
