NEWHALL, CA (May 30, 2020) – Late Friday afternoon, a person required hospitalization after a car and motorcycle crash near 15th Street.
The officials with the Los Angeles County Fire Department received a report of the traffic crash just after 5:00 p.m. The incident transpired near 15th Street and Walnut Street in Newhall.
“(It was) a car versus a motorcycle,” stated Supervisor Flores with the department.
Moreover, Flores confirmed that responders transported a person to a nearby hospital. However, the victim’s condition is still unknown.
At this time, the authorities haven’t determined the events that have led up to the crash.
Always look twice for motorcycles while driving. Due to their size and speed motorcyclists are easy to miss, especially at night or during high traffic activity.
Check your blind spots twice before changing lanes and never try to cut off a motorcycle. Maneuvering around a speeding bike can easily cause an accident. Keep your eyes on the road and avoid distractions.
