A male driver involved in an auto-motorcycle accident in Sacramento, California, would need an auto accident attorney’s services. Ulises Emmanual Briones-Rodriguez, on Wednesday, June 17th, collided with a motorcycle driven by an officer with the California Highway Patrol.
The accident occured on Interstate 80, a little before 9:30 p.m. on the eastbound lane at Watt Avenue overcrossing. The CHP said that Briones-Rodriguez was driving a Chevrolet S-10 Xtreme when the collision occurred. The officer sustained severe wounds but is currently in a stable and alert condition in an undisclosed hospital.
Briones-Rodriguez stayed at the scene and cooperated with the investigators. They determined that the suspect was under the influence and arrested him on suspicion of DUI. The affected lane of travel was closed while the CHP gathered evidence and cleared the scene. There is no additional information.
Auto-motorcycle accidents are one of the common types of traffic collisions. Others are two-vehicle collisions, multiple-vehicle collisions, and auto-pedestrian accidents. When a car and a motorcycle collide, the motorcyclist, due to the open design of the bike, lands on the roadway and sustains severe wounds.
Injuries sustained include head injuries like concussions and intracranial bleeding, broken bone and burns, fractures, and spinal cord wounds that can result in paralysis. These injuries sometimes end fatally for the motorcyclists.
Thus, riders must ride with care at all times, take turns slowly, and maintain the speed limit. Wear a US-DOT certified helmet and protective clothing to minimize injuries when a crash occurs.
