At around 9 p.m., an asphalt truck, attempting to turn left, collided into the motorcycle.  The traffic collision took place near the west side of Westminster Mall.

There was a male and a female on the motorcycle. Both riders were thrown from the motorcycle. One of the motorcycle riders was pronounced dead at the scene.

Newport Beach Motorcyclist Dies in Fatal crash

A male motorcyclist was killed early Saturday morning in a fatal motorcycle crash.

The motorcyclist has been identified as Ammar Sherbini, 31, of Santa Ana. He was riding his motorcycle at around 2:40. Sherbini was riding on West Coast Highway, west of Superior Avenue. Investigators believe he lost control of his motorcycle. Sherbini collided into narrow raised center divider. He was then thrown from his bike into a palm tree in the center divider. The bike came to a stop several hundred feet from the point of impact. No other vehicles or people were involved in the accident.

Sherbini was found dead at the scene. His injuries were quiet severe. Investigators said there was no initial evidence that drugs or alcohol were a factor in the crash. Excessive speed may have been a contributing factor, but investigators have not discovered the exact cause of the crash.

Police closed down all six of the southbound lanes of West Coast Highway. Only one northbound lane was left open. The Coast Highway was closed for several hours after the crash. It was not reopened by 7:30 a.m.  Investigators are still trying to determine the cause of the accident.

Motorcycle accidents are often fatal.  Motorcyclists have little protection. In the event of an accident, motorcyclists are often thrown from their bike. Motorcyclists only have body gear and a helmet to absorb the impact from a crash.  A motorcyclist can also be difficult to see on the road. Motorists often have trouble seeing motorcycles.

Motorcyclists need to take extra precaution to protect them on the road. It is important for every motorcyclist to wear a helmet and eye protection. Helmets can prevent or minimize major head injuries. Eye protection improves motorcyclists’ vision. Motorcyclists should also invest in brightly colored protective gear. The bright colors make motorcyclists more visible on the road. Motorcyclists should be especially careful riding at night or in the early morning.

If you are ever injured in a motorcycle accident, it is important to stay calm. Take pictures of the accident. Exchange information with everyone involved in the accident. You should also get any witnesses’ information. Call the police and your insurance agent. The police will keep the situation calm, and an officer will file a police report. You will want to get a copy of this police report.

If you are seriously injured, you should also contact a Newport Beach motorcycle accident lawyer. The Law Offices of Dara Khajavi is fully prepared to handle any motorcycle accident.

Fatal Motorcycle Accident Kills Huntington Beach Resident

A man driving a Toyota Sequoia collided into two motorcyclists.

The collision took place at around 8:43 p.m. Friday in Long Beach at 2nd Street and Glendora Avenue. Both the victims, Joseph Daroza and Taryn Hawk, were from Huntington Beach. They were both riding Harley Davidson motorcycles east on 2nd street. At the time of the collision, they were attempting to cross Glendora Street on a green light. The driver of the Toyota Sequoia, Nicholas Limer, attempted to make an unsafe left turn onto Glendora Avenue. He made the turn right in front of the motorcyclist and caused the collision.

Daroza was taken to the hospital. He was seriously injured but was in stable condition. He was later released on Sunday. Hawk died at the scene of the accident from head injuries. The two victims were out cruising after leaving the Agenda Trade Show at the Long Beach Convention Center.

Both of the victims worked for Sole Technology. Sole Technology is a Lake Forest based athletic shoe and clothing company. This company had three booths at the Agenda Trade Show. The two victims were there working and promoting the company. Sole Technology has released a statement about the accident.

Taryn Hawk’s coworkers remember him as a positive and outgoing person. He volunteered every year to work at Sole Technology’s Christmas event for children. Hawk also regularly donated to charities. He was a mentor for the company. Taryn Hawk enjoyed surfing at sunrise and living his life to the fullest. A memorial will be held for Hawk this Thursday at Olde World Village in Huntington Beach.

No arrests have been made yet. The Long Beach Police Department is planning to present the case to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office. Nicholas Limer may be charged. The exact charges are still unknown.
