San Bernardino, CA (August 28, 2019) – A 10-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy were both tragically killed in a multi-vehicle accident that happened in San Bernardino on Tuesday afternoon, August 27th. The crash, which involved a motorcycle and a pedestrian, took place at the intersection of North Sierra Way and West 18th Street.
According to authorities, a 14-year-old boy was the passenger on a motorcycle when it was involved in a multi-vehicle collision. While the cause of the crash remains unclear, a 10-year-old girl was confirmed to have been a pedestrian who was also involved in the crash. There were no reports concerning the other vehicles involved.
Emergency responders arrived at the scene to render aid and transported the injured 10-year-old girl to Loma Linda University Medical Center. She was pronounced deceased a short time later. The seriously injured 14-year-old boy was also taken to Loma Linda University Medical Center. He did not survive his injuries and died at the hospital.
The San Bernardino Police Department is in charge of the investigation into this incident.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to all of the families who have been affected by this accident.
Due to the extreme vulnerability of the victim at the time of impact, pedestrians are at a higher risk of suffering serious or even fatal injuries during an accident with a motor vehicle. In fact, pedestrian accidents in California have been reported to make up 11% of all California motor vehicle accident deaths. This is particularly true when the victim is a child or the accident involves a high-speed vehicle such as a motorcycle.
Unfortunately, fatal accidents can occur at any time, subsequently leaving loved ones with not only the pain and suffering of losing a family member but extremely high expenses as well. While it may be difficult, it is important for both victims or a bereaved family to understand that they likely have significant rights at this time.
