Biker Missing in Pomona Motorcycle-Big Rig Collision

Accidents cannot defy physics – this is always the case when a smaller car collides with a much bigger truck. This is what happened in a road accident at Pamona Freeway, California when a motorcycle crashed into a big rig that made the rider disappeared.

According to news reports, the collision happened around midnight, Monday, at Diamond Bar Boulevard and the California Highway Patrol conducted a ground and air search but failed to find the driver.

Drivers who witnessed the accident claim that the motorcycle was in the slow lane and a biker jacket was seen hanging from the undercarriage of another automobile but the motorcyclist was nowhere in sight, a CHP officer said.

In any road accident, someone is always accountable. If the investigation shows that the traffic mishap was caused by the negligence of the truck driver, he is liable to face the legal consequences of his actions. If this will be the case, the biker can file for damage compensations against the big rig driver and the trucking company.

In a report by Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration conducted in 2006, top five common causes for truck accidents in California were noted:

1. Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
2. Reckless driving
3. Unfamiliarity of the road
4. Inadequate surveillance
5. Driver fatigue
