San Francisco Motorcycle Accident caused by a piece of equipment falling from a tractor-trailer was responsible for leaving one person injured. According to CBS-San Francisco, the crash occurred on Friday, February 8, at around 6:30 a.m., near the exit for Treasure Island along the Bay Bridge.

A spokesman for the California Highway Patrol, Officer James Evans, explained the motorcycle was following the tractor-trailer along the westbound lanes of the highway when the drive shaft of the truck broke free and fell into the road in front of the bike. The motorcyclist did not have time to react to the falling debris and the bike collided with the debris. The impact of the collision caused the motorcyclist to be thrown from the machine, leaving him with minor injuries.

The crash leaves many wondering who is at fault for the collision. The California Personal Injury Lawyers with Berg Injury Lawyers explain if the piece that fell off the truck is confirmed by investigators to have been the cause of the accident, the owner of the truck and those responsible for its maintenance may be found negligent.

The firm recognizes the complexities of investigating such a crash. That is why they encourage anyone who has been involved in a motor vehicle crash at no fault of their own to contact an attorney immediately to discuss their case.
