1 Injured in Hesperia Motorcycle Accident on Amargosa Road
HESPERIA, CA (October 5, 2020) – Sunday afternoon, a motorcyclist was airlifted after a crash on Amargosa Road and Key Pointe Drive.
The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Deputies and fire personnel responded at 1:51 p.m. The incident took place on Amargosa Road about a half-mile from Key Pointe Drive.
When the authorities arrived, they found the male rider on the east shoulder of Amargosa Road.
According to a witness, the rider traveled at a high rate of speed. It even passed her up as she headed north on Amargosa Road.
“There were two motorcycles that were riding next to each other. That’s when one bike sped past my car and crashed into the white SUV. He came so close to my car as he passed me up at high speeds that it scared me,” the witness said.
According to preliminary reports, the motorcyclist lost control around the curve. As a result, he went into the dirt shoulder until he was thrown off from his bike.
Further Details on the Amargosa Road Crash
Once ejected, the motorcycle went north on Amargosa Road and crashed with the side of a southbound white SUV.
“I was behind the white SUV when I noticed a motorcycle coming our way with no rider on it, I thought it fell off a truck or something,” another witness revealed.
“When we realized it was a crash, we were looking for the rider everywhere because his bike was so far away from where he landed,” the witness added.
Due to the severity of injuries, the San Bernardino County Fire dispatched an airship. It landed near Baker’s Drive-Thru on Key Pointe Drive. Then, the male motorcyclist was flown to a trauma center with life-threatening injuries.
Meanwhile, the friend of the rider stopped and gave details of the incident to authorities.
Furthermore, the white SUV’s male driver was uninjured. As of this time, the details provided were limited.
Weaving in and out of lanes is dangerous. Always stay at your lane and be aware of the presence of other motorists around you. Pay attention and consider small vehicles like motorcycles and bicycles because these are more prone to road accidents than bigger vehicles.
The Rising Numbers of Accident in the US
According to the United States Department of Transportation, there are approximately 300,000 merging accidents every year.
Roadways, while scrupulously created and mapped for efficient travel, are one of the most dangerous settings.
As common of an occurrence as they are, many people do not suspect what follows in the event of a car crash.
The most valuable step you can take in response to a vehicle crash is hiring a personal injury attorney.
“Personal injury attorneys prioritize your recovery while securing your future from further losses a severe accident can bring. A common misconception is that personal injury lawyers don’t care.
