Officials say a motorcyclist died after colliding with another vehicle in Castro Valley Wednesday afternoon.
According to California Highway Patrol, 38-year-old Chad Goodwin of Turlock was traveling on his motorcycle near the intersection of Palomares Road and Paloverde Road around 4:45 p.m. when he collided with a truck driven by an unidentified motorist.
Mr. Goodwin died at the scene from his injuries. The truck driver was not hurt.
Officials are conducting an ongoing investigation to determine the cause of this incident.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, per vehicle mile traveled in 2007, motorcyclists were about 37 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in a motor vehicle traffic crash and 9 times more likely to be injured.
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.
