A Hesperia woman is arrested for a Sept. 12 motorcyclist’s death

On Behalf of | Oct 11, 2018 | Fatal Motor Vehicle Accidents |

A 31-year-old Hesperia woman was taken into custody on Oct. 4 on manslaughter charges. Police believe that she is responsible for causing a 29-year-old motorcyclist’s death that occurred at the intersection of Cottonwood Avenue and Main Street on Sept. 12 right before 7:50 p.m.

When police and paramedics arrived at the scene that evening, they found the motorcyclist lying next to his Harley Davidson motorcycle with serious injuries. The motorist who had allegedly caused the crash had reportedly taken off in their car.

As paramedics worked to save the motorcyclist’s life, police turned their attention to speaking with a witness who’d stayed at the scene.

They recounted how they had seen the driver of a sports utility vehicle (SUV) pull out of a business’ driveway and into the path of the 2018 motorcycle in the moments before the crash occurred. They said that it appeared that the motorcyclist was unable to adjust their speed fast enough to avoid crashing into the SUV.

The impact of the crash caused the motorcyclist to be ejected from their bike. He ultimately landed on the ground. The witness said that the driver of the SUV drove off upon seeing what had occurred.

Although paramedics worked diligently to try to save the motorcyclist at the crash scene, he succumbed to his injuries.

Police later tracked down the SUV’s driver to a Hesperia home located on C. Avenue. They used a previously-obtained search warrant to comb through the home. They located various pieces of evidence related to the crash and impounded the vehicle while they were there. Although they weren’t able to locate the SUV’s driver that day, they issued a warrant for her arrest which led to her capture three weeks later.

Police are now asking for the public’s help in identifying anyone who may have aided the woman in evading arrest during that period of time.

One statistic from 2009 showed that at least 48 percent of all Los Angeles motor vehicle accidents were hit-and-run crashes. Many of the victims were either seriously hurt or died from injuries they sustained during those accidents.

When a crash like this occurs, the onus falls on the victim to prove that another party was responsible for their injuries in order to be eligible for compensation of medical costs and other related considerations. Proving negligence in a hit-and-run crash is best handled by a Los Angeles fatal motor vehicle accident attorney who’s experienced in investigating these types of crashes.
