CLEARLAKE: 2 Juveniles Riding Motorcycle Hospitalized After Colliding with Reckless Driver at 33rd and Phillips Avenues

Earl Vogt, 24, Arrested

Clearlake motorcycle crash 33rd Avenue and Phillips AvenueCLEARLAKE, California (June 24, 2016) – Two teenage boys riding a motorcycle were hospitalized after colliding with an alleged reckless driver Sunday at 33rd and Phillips avenues, according to Record-Bee.

Clearlake Police Department said the crash was reported at 8:32 p.m., when a 2005 Dodge Dakota crashed into a street legal enduro motorcycle which was occupied by two 15-year-old boys.

As per the article, the young driver of the motorcycle was taken to Saint Helena Hospital to be treated for moderate injuries. His passenger was seriously injured and was airlifted for treatment.

Police determined that 24-year-old Clearlake resident Earl Vogt was driving recklessly as he followed a red Mustang throughout the city. The two vehicles continued south upon reaching Phillips Avenue.

The Mustang crossed over the double-yellow lines into the oncoming lane of traffic to pass the juveniles on the motorcycle. Vogt then did the same to overtake the bike which subsequently began to make a left turn onto 33rd Avenue.

The speeding Dodge collided with the motorcycle. Both riders, whose names were undisclosed, were thrown off from their vehicle.

According to Record-Bee, Vogt was arrested and booked into the Lake County jail and faces charges of felony child endangerment and felony reckless driving. He was traveling with three juveniles who were in the rear seat of the Dodge when the wreck occurred.

Alcohol or drugs did not appear to have played a role in the incident which is still under investigation.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat. Attorney James Johnson helps you be aggressive with the treatment, so the average case normally takes between two and five months. Those who have serious injuries and need surgery may take several months longer. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.

You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case. When the case is settled, our fee is a percentage, as previously agreed, of the final settlement. These fees are described in full detail in our signed contract before work begins on the case. We cover the case upfront costs including everything from copying and court filing fees to hiring experts - so all your focus can be on getting well.
