Car Crash Kills Motorcyclist
32-Year-Old Motorcyclist Killed In Intersection
A single normal Sunday afternoon showed the danger posed by one of the more significant necessities of our current everyday lives. Whether it is a general commute between work and home, or going out for an evening of fun with friends and loved ones, majority of the time driving has become a necessity. A necessity that can easily lead to tragedy.
On June 7, 2015, 32 year-old Craig Bock lost his life when his bike crashed with a vehicle. According to the California Highway Patrol, the fatal accident took place at approximately 2:45 in the afternoon at the intersection of Suisun Valley and Mankas Corner. Reports state that Bock was riding a 2010 Harley Davidson Sportster northbound on Suisun Valley Road. As he approached the intersection, 66 year-old David Beyer, in a 1997 Nissan Frontier approached the intersection from the southbound direction on Suisun and proceeded to make a left turn. Unfortunately, Beyer seemingly did not notice Bock, as his action placed him right in Bock’s path.
The CHP stated that Bock attempted to avoid the Nissan Frontier but was unsuccessful. The impact of the hit fatally injured Bock and he was pronounced dead at the scene. Beyer suffered moderate injuries and was transported to a hospital. The CHP have determined that neither alcohol nor drugs played a factor in the collision.
In this case, if Bock’s loved ones could establish Beyer’s negligence in failing to yield the right of way to Bock prior to making his left turn, they may be able to recover for the loss of their loved one in a wrongful death suit against Beyer.
