North County Crash Kills 36-Year-Old Man

North County, CA (December 31, 2021) – On Wednesday, a 36-year-old Oceanside man died in a State Route 78 motorcycle crash.

The fatal collision happened at 12:30 p.m. near Split Mountain Road.

Officers said the man riding a 2015 KTM EXC-450 enduro off-road dirt bike was stopped on the freeway’s shoulder.

Unfortunately, he failed to observe a westbound 2016 Kenworth semi-truck hauling a propane tank trailer. The rider hit the side of the truck as he pulled onto the highway. 

The impact of the crash ejected him from the motorcycle.

Investigators said the victim suffered grave injuries.

Immediately, the rescuers airlifted the unidentified rider to Desert Regional Medical Center in Palm Springs, where he died.

Moreover, the 59-year-old trucker from Albuquerque did not incur injuries from the crash.

The authorities said neither alcohol nor drugs were factors in the State Route 78 motorcycle crash.


Sweet Lawyers would like to express our sincere condolences to the family and friends of the deceased. May you courage during this difficult time.


Fatal Motorcycle Crash

When someone dies or is killed due to another person’s negligence or misconduct, the bereaved can sue the negligent parties for the damages that they caused.

Some of the instances that could result in a wrongful death are homicide, medical malpractice, transportation accidents, pedestrian collisions, and any other instance caused by the wrongdoing of another person.

In filing for a wrongful death case, we must know that there is a time limit on when family members can take legal action. These restrictions are called the statute of limitations.

It only allows the bereaved to file a wrongful death lawsuit within a certain amount of time. Unfortunately, when these expire, the legal claim is no longer valid and the family of the deceased can no longer file a lawsuit against the responsible party.

Thus, it is important to know and understand these time limitations, as they vary from state to state and case to case.

With this in mind, it is best to reach out to us at Sweet Lawyers to know more about how a wrongful death case could help you and your family.
