Many people in California residents enjoy operating motorcycles and the feeling of freedom that can come with doing so. Other people find being a passenger on a motorcycle equally enjoyable without the responsibility of having to drive the bike. People in both positions, however, can face serious risks if an accident occurs. These crashes may be caused by other vehicles or by motorcyclists themselves that leave their passengers injured.

The actions of one motorcyclist along a stretch of the 101 Freeway in Encinco are believed to have caused the death of the passenger on the motorcycle. The 27-year-old biker himself was injured and required hospitalization. Reports indicate that he would ultimately be charged with gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated and driving under the influence causing injury.

The motorcyclist is believed to have been driving over the speed limit when he ran his bike into the back of a passenger car. That impact led his passenger to be thrown from the bike and subsequently hit by not just one but by multiple vehicles. It is not known how many cars hit the woman or if she died at the scene of the crash or at a hospital. the woman was 20 years old.

Family members who lose loved ones in senseless accidents may find it helpful to talk with an attorney to learn what options they have for seeking compensation.
