A 52-year-old man was riding his motorcycle on Highway 62, when a car turned left in front of him in an intersection without a turn signal. The motorcyclist suffered injuries including bilateral pelvis fractures.
Fortunately, the police officer at the scene reported that the accident could have been avoided with better signage. WCLG investigation and forensic analysis revealed that the intersection had an elevated accident rate. Additionally, we learned that requests had been made for a study to be conducted at this intersection.
Because the state failed to correct the dangerous condition, of which it was aware, WCLG was able to procure a settlement from the party who turned left, and an additional $500,000 from the State of California to compensate the injured motorcyclist.
