A motorcyclist in Boulder Canyon attempted an illegal maneuver that ended his ride in tragedy.
The 29-year-old man from Westminster was riding east on Boulder Canyon Drive on Saturday, October 20. He attempted to pass four cars on the two-lane road while driving in a no-passing zone. When he tried to merge back into the eastbound lane between the first and second car, he clipped the first car. The collision threw the man from his bike, and he landed in the westbound lane, where he was hit by another car.
Police say that no other drivers sustained injuries in the fatal motorcycle accident. They are currently investigating to determine if speed or alcohol factored into the crash.
No matter what vehicle you are driving, you should never attempt to pass vehicles in a no-passing zone. Exercise patience and wait for the next available opening.
In 2008, over 5,290 bikers died in motorcycle accidents, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
