Kings, Fresno, and Tulare County Wrongful Death Lawyer John Rozier has the following collision report; On Monday, October 5, 2015, a motorcycle accident ended in fatality, on Highway 198. The semi truck crash occurred west of Lemoore, at approximately 1:20 PM.
A motorcyclist, riding on a 2000 Yamaha bike, was traveling east on Highway 198, near the Lemoore Naval Air Station. As the motorcycle was headed eastbound on the freeway, a Peterbilt tractor-trailer merged onto the road from Jameson Avenue.
The biker crashed into the back of the big rig and was thrown from the vehicle. He was pronounced dead at the scene of the collision.
This accident requires much more investigation, including determining the speed of the big rig, whether road conditions may have contributed to this accident, and whether the facts of this accident as reported are accurate.
