Merced County, CA (April 24, 2021) – On Monday, Selina Granados, 37, and John Canavan, 59, were injured in a motorcycle crash on State Road 49.
The Merced accident took place just before 2:15 p.m. when the two motorcycles collided.
Reports said Granados was northbound on her 2019 Honda motorcycle on State Road 49. She approached a curve in the roadway at around 30-35 miles per hour.
At the same time Canavan approached southbound on his 2018 BMW motorcycle.
Apparently, Granados’ bike swerved over the double yellow line and went directly in front of Canavan’s motorcycle.
As a result, the two bikes crashed and both drivers were thrown from their bikes. Both of them landed on the roadway.
Canavan and Granados sustained serious injuries in the accident.
Immediately, rescuers flew Granados to Memorial Medical Center for treatment. Canavan, on the other hand, was flown to Doctors Medical Center.
Meanwhile, officers said both Granados and Canavan were wearing helmets when their motorcycles crashed.
CHP does not believe drugs or alcohol to be a factor in this traffic accident.
Scan the road 1/2 mile to a full mile ahead in order to look out or recognize potential hazards in time. Our bodies weren’t designed to travel at 50mph. We were designed for speeds of less than 10mph, therefore driving at steady speeds, especially when on a motorcycle, is crucial.
What To Do in Case of Serious Motorcycle Accident
While driving is needed for many in order to move about in their lives, it is one of the most dangerous activities performed every day. As common of an occurrence as they are, many people do not suspect what follows in the event of a car crash.
Furthermore, according to the United States Department of Transportation, there are approximately 300,000 merging accidents every year.
