Bakersfield, CA (October 4, 2019) – Both a man and a woman were reported to have lost their lives following a serious accident that took place in Bakersfield Wednesday, October 2nd, on Wilson Road at around 8:09 p.m.
According to the Bakersfield Police Department, Santiago Algandar Soto, 24, and Lorena Villalba Espinoza, 23, were traveling west along Wilson Road on a motorcycle. A passing sedan then failed to yield the right of way to the motorcyclists and a collision occurred.
Emergency medical crews were immediately dispatched to the scene where both Soto and Espinoza were pronounced deceased. The driver involved remained at the scene and was cooperative with authorities. The investigation is ongoing.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the families of both victims at this time.
Over 480 people were killed in California motorcycle accidents in 2013, according to California’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System, and hundreds more suffered minor to catastrophic injuries. The cause of every motorcycle accident may be different, however, the lack of protection in place for riders can be devastating. When a motorcyclist is injured or killed due to the negligent actions of another party, it is important to obtain experienced representation.
Unfortunately, serious and even fatal accidents can occur at any time, leaving victims and their loved ones with not only pain and suffering but extremely high expenses as well. While it may be difficult, it is important to understand that you may likely have significant rights at this time.
