The Sacramento County Coroner’s Office has identified the motorcyclist killed in a collision in Sacramento, California. On Sunday, June 21st, the coroner named Patrick McNamara, a 60-year-old city resident as the victim.
The accident report disclosed that the crash occurred around 10:50 a.m. on Saturday, June 20th. According to California Highway Patrol, McNamara was riding a motorcycle that collided with a dark-colored sedan on Lone Road near Meiss Road in southeastern Sacramento County for unknown reasons.
The man died at the scene, and the first responders pronounced him. There is currently no additional information, and the investigation is ongoing.
An auto-motorcycle collision is one of the causes of crash-related deaths, and the motorcyclist is often the fatal victim due to the open design of the bike. The severity of the injuries sustained when a person gets ejected from the motorcycle and lands on the roadway with little or no covering also results in fatal injuries.
The California Department of Motor Vehicles Motorcycle Handbook for those preparing to ride states that riders have a better chance of surviving accidents when they wear protective gear and apparel. The two covers a U.S. Department of Transportation compliant safety helmet with face and (or) eye protection, and leather or long sleeve jacket with reflective materials.
The rider should also have on long heavy pants, over the ankle closed-toe boots, and full-fingered leather gloves. Additionally, follow safety tips, maintain the speed limit, and obey traffic rules and regulations.
