Four Killed in Motorcycle Accident on Santiago Canyon Road

Four Killed in Motorcycle Accident on Santiago Canyon Road

On Sunday, July 7, 2019, four people were killed when two motorcycles were involved in a head-on collision. Three of the victims were Orange County residents, and the fourth was from Nevada. They all died at the scene.

The devastating accident happened after 4:30 pm when one of the riders swerved to pass the vehicle in front of them. Unfortunately, as the motorcycle rounded a blind curve of the windy road, it hit a second bike heading in the opposite direction.

Motorcycle Accident Statistics

Because motorcycles are small and do not offer riders the same protection as a vehicle, they are more likely to be involved in accidents that result in fatalities. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2017, over 5,000 motorcyclists were killed in crashes.

A majority of motorcycle accidents involve collisions with other vehicles. In instances when another driver’s negligence or reckless actions caused the crash, they could be held financially liable for damages.
