57-year-old motorcyclist loses life in wrongway accident

A tragic motor vehicle accident happened along 405 Freeway in Torrance last Sunday. The incident involved a pickup truck and a motorcycle. In the aftermath of the incident, the motorcyclist was dead, and police arrested the truck driver on charges of driving the wrong way and on suspicion of being drunk.

The collision happened at approximately 3 a.m., Sunday morning in the southbound lanes of traffic. According to police, the pickup truck -- driven by a 22-year-old driver -- was traveling the wrong way down the road. The young driver suffered minor injuries in the incident and did not require hospital care.

The 57-year-old motorcycle driver was not so lucky. His family members, friends and fellow community members will no doubt be feeling the shockwaves of his tragic loss. They will probably also want answers: Why did this accident happen? How drunk was the pickup truck driver? Does the pickup truck driver have a history of drunk driving and/or traffic violations? As police continue their investigations, these questions will be answered soon.

As the events and facts of this accident unfold, the immediate family members of the deceased motorcyclists may want to investigate their legal rights and options. Surviving family members of those killed in fatal motor vehicle accidents -- when the accident was not the fault of the deceased driver -- may have the right to pursue a wrongful death action. If successfully navigated, a wrongful death lawsuit could bring much-needed financial support, damage compensation and other forms of compensation to close family members of the deceased.
