Retired NBA and TV analyst for Time Warner Cable SportsNet Robert Horry was unhurt after the car he was driving struck a motorcycle on a Los Angeles freeway. The accident left the motorcycle rider hospitalized.

The accident happened Tuesday afternoon after Horry’s 2014 Infiniti collided with the 2013 Yamaha motorcycle driven by Xerxes Baldonasa of Long Beach, the California Highway Patrol said Wednesday. The accident happened on the 105 Freeway near Inglewood.

According to the California Highway Patrol, Baldonasa, 44, was treated for moderate injuries at a local hospital. Horry, 44, didn’t receive any injuries. No arrests have been made at this time.

According to the police, Baldonasa was riding his motorcycle between two sets of double yellow lines that separate the car pool lane from the other lanes. Horry was attempting to change from the left lane into the car-pool lane, and crossed over the double yellow lines. This caused him to collide with Baldonasa’s motorcycle.

The accident remains under investigation according to officials familiar with the case.

Horry is famous for playing for the Lakers from 1997 to 2003, and making clutch shots in big, important games. He won seven NBA Championships with the Lakers, Houston, and San Antonio. He also spent some time playing for Phoenix during his 16-year career, which ended in 2008.

Motorcycle riders can receive serious personal injuries when they are involved in roadway accidents. It is important for motorcyclists to be careful when they are on freeways or side streets because of all the potential harm that can come their way. On Tuesday evening, August 14, one man was injured while riding his motorcycle in Novato.

A 56-year old man from Santa Rosa was riding his 2012 Triumph motorcycle when he collided with another vehicle. He was going northbound on Highway 101 of Atherton Avenue at about 35 to 40 miles per hour. Qi Qe White Elk Ross, 60, was driving his 1988 Dodge Ram pickup truck and also going around 35 to 40 mph. Samples was splitting traffic between lanes when Ross, who is from Penngrove, signaled and attempted to merge his automobile into a right lane where Samples was riding in.

When the pickup truck tried to merge in the lane, Samples responded by attempting to pass Ross on the right side of the pickup truck. However, his motorcycle struck the right, rear side of the vehicle causing the motorcyclists to be ejected. Samples landed on the far right-hand lane and his motorcycle also came to a stop further down the freeway.

California Highway Patrol responded and documented the accident. The Navato Fire paramedics also came to the accident site and brought Samples to a Santa Rosa hospital. He needed to be treated for his compound fracture on his lower left leg as well as for a major fracture to his left femur.

Ross was relatively uninjured and was able to escape the whole affair without any major personal injuries. Luckily no other drivers or passengers were involved in the motorcycle accident and no other injuries inflicted.

After the accident, the two right-hand lanes were closed briefly for 20 minutes while the paramedics and authorities transferred Samples to a local hospital.

When driving a motorcycle, the rider must be aware of the traffic and vehicles around him or her. Motorcyclists are more prone to personal injuries when they are involved in a collision. And in the state of California where splitting traffic is permitted, motorcycle riders need to be even more wary and careful out on the roads. An accident can happen at any given moment so it is very important for all drivers on the road to look out for the safety of each other.

If you have attained personal injury from an automobile accident, take action now and receive compensation for your injuries, pain, and suffering. Contact a Sacramento motorcycle attorney today to see what next steps you can take.

Identity of Motorcyclist Hit by Pickup Truck Found

A shattering accident has taken place near Fresno. When a motorcycle rider gets involved in a collision, the outcome is normally devastating. However, an incident that has recently taken place in California is a bit more complex. The rider of the motorcycle was not hit while she was on her vehicle, but rather when she was thrown out into the road. It is then that an unsuspecting automobile hit the rider. Sadly, the driver didn’t wait for authorities to appear but instead rode away from the scene.

A female motorcyclist who was killed on Highway 99 was identified on Monday, July 2. The accident occurred on Friday, June 29 in Selma. She was merging into the freeway when she lost control and was thrown out into the highway. It is then that a pickup driver struck the victim before driving away from the scene of the accident.

The lady riding the motorcycle was identified as a Naval Air Station Lemoore, Martha Cook. She was 30 years old and from Hanford. The accident happened at 10:40 a.m. Friday morning while on the Highway 43 ramp merging onto Highway 99. Cook ended up going straight on the ramp instead of following the curve when she lost control. This caused her to hit a raised curb and to slide across the three northbound lanes of the 99 Highway before being hit by the pickup truck.

The pickup driver had reportedly pulled over on the side of the highway after hitting Cook but then drove away. Officials are asking for information about the driver of the pickup truck. His vehicle is reported to be light green and full sized. It has an extended cab and its rear windows are tinted. Investigators are saying that the pickup truck may have damage to its right front side or windshield as a result of the hit. A California Highway Patrol said that the driver who hit Cook wouldn’t have faced any legal charges related to the collision if only had the individual stayed. CHP officers are asking people who have any information to call the Fresno-area police department.

Motorcycle riders have the biggest risk of deadly accidents when they are out in the road. With quite less protection compared to an average vehicle, motorcyclists can easily attain personal injuries when they get into a collision. Sadly for Martha Cook, when the pickup driver hit her, she did not have the same protection a car would have. It was only her in the middle or the road versus a full sized pickup truck.

If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident and received personal injury, do not hesitate to take legal action. Don’t allow the guilty party to get away with what they did. Call a Fresno motorcycle lawyer today and start taking steps towards justice.

Motorcycle Accident was Fatal When Rider Crashed into Truck

For motorcycle drivers, driving accidents can prove to yield very serious personal injury, sometimes even resulting in wrongful death. The fact that they have very little cushioning and protection makes motorcycle riders prone to harm when out in the road. Sadly, this was the case for a motorcyclist one grave weekend.

On Saturday, June 16, Dominic Tocar was killed in a motorcycle accident while driving down Pacific Coast Highway near Long Beach. He had collided with a truck driver who had made an unsafe left turn.

The accident happened on the 5500 block of the Pacific Coast Highway. Tocar was reported to have been riding at a very high speed going northbound. The truck driver was heading southbound, turning left when the collision occurred. Both drivers were Long Beach residents.

While motorcycle crashes are fatal for the driver, truck accidents are quite the opposite. Because of the bulk and size of a big rig, most truck drivers hardly end up wounded when involved in a car accident. For truck accidents, it is the other party (who are in an automobile, motorcycle, etc.) that ends up receiving serious personal injury. Whether it is the truck or automobile’s fault, the consequences of the crash can prove to be grave.

Thirty-three year old Tocar was speeding on PCH, unknowing that a truck would be making an unsafe turn. His speed wasn’t enough to allow him to dodge the truck; instead, it was his speed that caused him to fatally collide into the truck. There was no way that the victim would have been able to foretell the careless error the other driver was about to make. Speeding or not, motorcycle passengers can receive a lot of injuries and damage when involved in an accident. It was extra unfortunate that Tocar collided into a truck since trucks are known to cause major injuries to their crash victims.

After the collision, Tocar was taken to a nearby hospital but later died. The 66-year old driver of the truck was interviewed and cited but later released.

Dominic Tocar’s family, who were not notified right away of the accident, must currently be facing a very tough and emotional time. There is no way to retrieve a lost human life, and no way to undo an accident.

It is important, however, to stand up for you rights and to seek justice. If you have lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident, or if you yourself have been victim to an automobile accident, you have the right to seek an attorney and get compensation for your pain and suffering. A motorcycle accident and other car accidents are unfortunate, but don’t allow this event to overshadow your life.
