Motorcycle crashes are usually serious due to the fact that riders have few protections against the impact of a larger vehicle. In most cases, drivers who hit motorcyclists stop at the scene to assist. This is the law, and it's the morally sound thing to do. When they don't stop, drivers can be charged with a hit-and-run and potentially other criminal charges.
This hit-and-run case is unique in that police have had to investigate a number of avenues to find the suspect. On Aug. 1, a fatal motorcycle accident took place in Modjeska Canyon. The motorcyclist passed away from the injuries suffered, and a female passenger was left with severe injuries.
