William Nowlin, 42, was killed Saturday evening while riding an ATV on private property just off of U.S. Route 101 near Ryan Creek Road. The California Highway Patrol stated that Mr. Nowlin died before officials could arrive, and that friends only called for help well after the accident.
No other injuries were reported in this accident. It is not known what cause the accident or if Mr. Nowlin was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.
According to the Current Orthopaedic Practice Research Journal, each year ATV accidents produce approximately 200 deaths and 14,000 injuries. Excess speed, alcohol, driver inexperience, and poor judgment are the leading causes of accidents.
Seeing a copy of the California accident report is extremely important. Reports are critical to professional investigations and also serve to create peace of mind for the victims and their families. Without an official report, you’ll likely be unaware of several key facts that help to explain how the accident happened, and you’ll also be unable to dispute any inaccuracies the accident report may contain.
3 Facts to remember about California Accident reports:
If you file an insurance claim or lawsuit, this document will be the first piece of evidence that everyone wants to see.
An California accident report’s main purpose is to tell what happened: how, where, when, and to whom.
The “how” of an accident report is the officer’s best after-the-fact interpretation of the crash. Sometimes it’s possible to amend disputed facts in a report.
