Harley Davidson Motorcycle, Lexus Crash on Torrey Pines Road
LA JOLLA, Calif. (Jan. 26, 2018) — A 56-year-old motorcyclist was seriously injured Thursday night when a car made a left-hand turn in front of the bike in the 2000 block of Torrey Pines Road, according to the San Diego Police Department.
The crash took place about 5:54 p.m. last night. A 77-year-old woman was driving a silver 2009 Lexus SUV eastbound on Torrey Pines Road when she made a turn onto northbound Calle De La Plata. The motorcyclist was unable to stop and crashed his 2016 Harley Davidson into the right side of the SUV.

Police are investigating the collision, but at this time they do not believe that drugs and or alcohol were factors.

Police are reviewing the circumstances that caused this collision in an effort to determine liability. At this time, it looks like the driver in the car is at fault.
In a case such as this one, a person who is hurt may recover their financial losses if the other motorist is held responsible. There are often medical expenses, lost wages, property damage and other costs to a victim including pain and suffering compensation. It’s important to note, however, that it’s quite common for insurance companies to try and avoid paying out a claim. It’s typical that insurance adjusters will try to pin the blame on the motorcycle rider. Also, expect them to make an offer that is far less than the full amount owed.
