Motorcyclist in critical condition after head on crash

In Fallbrook, about an hour away from San Diego, the driver of a passenger vehicle ran head-on in to a motorcyclist. The force of the impact threw the motorcyclist from his vehicle and caused him to land in the dirt alongside the road.

Authorities described the motorcyclist's injuries as "serious." The man was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was listed in critical condition.

Police say that the driver of the passenger car caused the accident when he, for no apparent reason, crossed the solid yellow line dividing traffic and moved right in to the path of the oncoming motorcycle.

Police indicated that they were still investigating the accident in the hopes of getting some explanation as to why the driver did this, and they have made no comment on whether they suspect drugs, alcohol or some other factor. The scene of the accident was cordoned off to traffic for several hours while police investigated.

While the results of the investigation will be important to the victim and his family, even at this stage, it is apparent that, for whatever reason, the driver of a car did not stay in his own lane and, as a result, had a catastrophic head-on car accident with a motorcyclist.

It is the responsibility of all drivers to remain in their lane of traffic at all times, particularly when only a yellow line and a few feet separate the driver from oncoming traffic. When drivers do not meet this responsibility, then their victims may be able to claim compensation for things like medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering.
