December 9th, 2013| December 9, 2013 The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says that in 2008, motorcycle accidents accounted for roughly 14 percent of all highway fatalities. The California Motorcycle Accident Lawyers with Berg Injury Lawyers point out that such a collision recently resulted in the death of the host of a popular television program. NBC-Bay Area News reports that Bill Beckwith, the 38-year-old host of the HGTV show “Curb Appeal”, was riding a motorcycle near the intersection of Oak and Steiner streets in the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood of the city at approximately 8:30 p.m. when he was struck by another vehicle. The 30-year-old driver who was responsible for causing the crash immediately stopped the vehicle and rendered aid to the victim, but the impact of the collision resulted in the victim sustaining serious injuries. Rescue crews were called to the scene to transport him to a local hospital for further treatment. The victim died shortly after arrival though. Investigators are continuing to examine what contributing factors may have played a part in the crash. Berg Injury Lawyers and their team of California Personal Injury Lawyers are aware of how difficult it can be to overcome the loss of a loved one due to an accident caused by another person’s negligence. That is why the firm would like to send their deepest condolences to the family of the man who was killed in this tragic accident.
