Auto-Motorcycle Collision in Angeles National Forest Kills Javier Barragan

On Sunday morning, July 26th, an auto-motorcycle collision in Angeles National Forest in the San Fernando area of California killed a man. The accident report disclosed his identity as Javier Barragan, a 25-year-old resident of Los Angeles.

According to the California Highway Patrol, the victim was riding a Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R at top speed. He was southbound on Highway 39 when he went across the centerline and collided with an oncoming Toyota Tacoma driven by a 38-year-old man from Van Nuys.

The collision’s impact ejected Barragan from his motorcycle, leaving him injured. He succumbed to his wounds at the scene. The driver of the Tacoma was uninjured, and the investigators did not cite him for the crash. The investigation by the CHP remains active.

When it comes to auto-motorcycle accidents, factors leading to it are easily avoidable if road users make safety a priority. Riding a bike or driving a car under the influence of drugs or alcohol might lead to speeding and recklessness, ultimately leading to collisions.

Other causes are distractions, road rage, animal sighting, an underlying medical condition, or mechanical defects. Riding a motorcycle or driving a car in adverse weather like rain, snow, or fog leads to low visibility, and also causes collisions of this nature.

Motorcyclists and drivers can avoid auto-motorcycle collisions by obeying the road’s rules and practicing safe road habits. A motorcycle rider should wear a helmet and protective apparel to ensure he or she is protected and have a higher chance of surviving an accident with a motor vehicle.
