REDDING, Calif. (Feb. 7, 2018) — Jesse Lee Quaid, 33, of Redding, and his passenger, Kristionna Anne Quaid, 36, both died Sunday following a collision between the motorcycle they were riding on and an SUV at Keswick Dam Boulevard and Quartz Hill Road.
The collision took place after the motorcyclist allegedly lost control of the bike in a curve and was hit by the oncoming SUV. The man died of his injuries at the scene, but Kristionna Anne Quaid was taken by ambulance to Mercy Medical Center where she was later pronounced dead. The 41-year-old man driving the SUV and his 2-year-old passenger were not hurt.
The crash remains under investigation by the California Highway Patrol who will ultimately determine the cause of the crash and liability.
Motorcycle Accident Investigation
An investigation into a collision involving a motorcyclist and a vehicle can be complicated. Police will determine what happened based on the facts and witness statements.
If a negligent driver caused a collision that left you with injuries or the loss of a loved one, you may have grounds for a personal injury claim even if there is some fault on both sides.
It’s important to note, however, that it’s quite common for insurance companies to try and avoid paying out a claim even when they know their insured is at fault. They may also make an offer to settle for far less than the full amount owed. This is unacceptable.
